The significance and magnitude of the Peruvian Navy finds a place of permanent memory and recognition in the "Naval Museum". The fascinating naval and maritime history of Peru is shown with archaeological testimonies, personal objects of war heroes, ship models, instruments for navigation, photos, paintings, jewellery, sculptures and documents. In the library you will find all sort of books connected with the maritime history.

On Sundays or with prior arrangement the museum offers an interesting "package": tour through the museum (1 ½ h to 2 h) and a great 30 min. boat trip around Callao harbour. Enjoy!
