Pre-Columbian Displays

Trying to wrap your head around Peru's thousands of years of human history and its sweeping cultural diversity? Lima has more than one museum worth seeking out for this pursuit, including the Museum of the Nation, which occupies a downright imposing building along Av. Javiar Prado Este. Here you'll find a nice collection of pre-Columbian artifacts from a wide array of indigenous Peruvian cultures, including the Moche, Nazca, and Paracas. Enigmatic carved stone, beautiful ceramics and textiles, timeworn musical instruments, the tomb of the Lord of Sipán (a Moche mummy): There's some fascinating stuff here, but be sure to also check out the National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History as well.
