The Museum of the Nation

Indeed the Museo de la Nación is not as well-known as other archeological museums in Lima, Peru, but it is still worth a visit. It shows the Peruvian history in an impressive way. The remarkable presentation of pre-Christian cultures and the collections of Nasca, Wari and Moche ceramics are unique.
