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.

The museum often houses temporary exhibitions and cultural events. Check out announcements in the local press.

The permanent exhibition area of the museum is closed for renovation presumably until mid-2015! Only the places for temporary exhibitions in the 3rd and 6th floor as well as the convention rooms are open to the public.
