Lima, Peru – 5 reasons why the Larco Museum is special and 5 more reasons to visit Barranco

The Larco Museum

In 2017 the Larco Museum won Trip Advisors award for the top 25 museums in the world. The Larco Museum (Museo Arqueológico Rafael Larco Herrera) is a privately-owned museum of pre-Columbian art that is well worth a visit. If you have a chance to get to Guayacamin in Quito then they are worth comparing. The Larco museum is housed in an 18th-century vice-royal structure that has been built on top of a 7th-century pre-Columbian pyramid.
