When to Get There

The museum is open Tuesdays to Sundays, from morning until afternoon. Chiclayo’s dry season runs from May to September, while the rainy season runs from December to March. Come to the area in June for a festival honoring San Pedro and San Pablo, the patron saints of fishermen and farmers; and in August when locals dance, throw fireworks, and hike to a highland village to mark Cruz de Chalpon.

Wildcard

Huaca Rajada Forgotten in the desert for over 1,700 years, Huaca Rajada was a sacred burial site for Moche nobility and royalty. In 1987, when looters were found with lavish gold artifacts, police understood a large discovery must be nearby. When archaeologist Walter Alva was called to see if there were other tombs, he unearthed the “Lord of Sipan” and his pristine tomb of jewels and gold—heralded as the greatest archaeological discovery of the 20th century.
