Museo Tumbas Reales de Sipán
Opened in november 2002, this museum is the pride of northern Peru, as well it should be. It is a world-class facility designed specifically to showcase the marvelous finds of the Royal Tombs of Sipan. This museum succeeds in evoking the full grandeur and sophistication of the ancient Moche Civilization (100-750 AD) in a way that adobe pyramids, now reduced to mud mountains, often do not. The director of the museum is Dr Walter Alva, who was responsible for the discovery, protection and archaeological investigation of Sipan.

Photography is not permitted and all bags must be checked.

Visitors enter through the 3rd floor and enter a hall containing fabulous ceramics representing gods, people, plants, llamas and other animals. Large photos and models show what Sipan is and was like: in AD 300 there were two huge truncated pyramids,constructed over several generations of millions of adobe bricks. Descending into the 2nd floor, visitors see how the archaeologists worked at excavating,preserving and restoring the royal finds. Objects include three pairs of turquoise and gold ear ornaments showing ducks, deer and the Lord of Sipan himself. The painstaking and advanced techniques necessary to create this jewelry, place them among the most beautiful and important objects of the pre-columbian Americas.
