The aim of the "Museum of Identification" is to make people aware of the importance of identification and the uniqueness of each person (in Peru around one million people live without being registered and therefore without legal documents!).

You are guided through the history and development of identification in Peru und the world from the early ages until today.

Interesting are the images of a nomadic cave, miniatures of the Incas, native communities, Roman emperors and the birth certificate of Saint Martín de Porres (1579). Interactive modules show you the possibilities of identification today.
