This museum displays the historic development of Peru through a collection of archaeological finds. More than 100,000 pieces from pre-Hispanic Peruvian cultures are arranged chronologically and didactically, highlighting ceramics, metals, weavings, funeral offerings and figures carved in stone. Artifacts from pre-Inca Peru include stone tools carved some 8,000 years ago. The museum is housed in a former palatial mansion, the inhabitants of which included a Spanish Viceroy and the Argentine General and Liberator, Jose de San Martín.
