Chiclayo, PE

Museo Tumbas Reales de Sipan

The Museo Tumbas Reales de Sipan provides an interesting glimpse into funerary rituals of high ranking people from the Moche culture. This was without question one of the best museums we visited on our entire trip. Unfortunately photography was prohibited but if you follow this link you can see a small sample of what we saw and learn a bit of background about the site and museum. In the photo below we are standing outside of the museum which was designed to resemble the tomb of the Lord of Sipan.

Brüning Museum

The Brüning Museum is a much older museum which was established in the nineteen twenties. Photography was allowed in this museum, so we were able to capture images of some similar artifacts.

It's safer up here!
