Do you know, that Inca is not the only Indian civilization in Peru? You can learn more in the National Museum of Archeology, Anthropology, and History of Peru.
One of my favorite museum in Lima is a place where you may learn more about ancient Indian civilizations lived in the territory of Peru.
There wasn’t only Inca, but also Nazca, Paracas and a lot of much more different hard to pronounce civilizations.
But all of them have a common thing – all of them were very creative in art and architecture. You won’t find boring chapters, instead a lot of funny figures and vases from clay, animals, and gods metal figures, original drawings, and textures on the textile.
One more thing that makes this museum attractive both for kids and adults is that in addition to archeological exhibitions it represents a high amount of models and installations. You may find few square meter sized Machu Picchu copy, as well as Nazca lines panoramic wall.
This museum pretty frequently holds different cultural events, when you may get a free entrance and extra experience in Peruvian culture.

The museum is in Pueblo Libre district. This district is one of the oldest in Lima, you may notice it because of its beautiful colonial achitecture.
Once you will have a plan to visit this museum, I suggest you one of my #mustSee places – a traditional and very old restobar Antigua Taberna Queirolo.
The easiest and the safest way to reach Pueblo Libre district from Miraflores is to use a taxi, Uber or Cabify. A ride will cost you about $3 one way.
