  • The museum is right next to the Huaca de la Luna, so this opinion goes for both. The Huaca is AMAZING... that last wall you see, in the people’s patio, is just unforgettable... impressive...

  • Nice place which deserves 5 stars! Good expansions in English in every corner! Well done. I recommend taking 1h for the first information before the tour at the ruins.
  • Great exhibits, included explanations in Spanish and English.
