HALF DAY TOUR TO PERUVIAN GOLD MUSEUM

In the ancient Peru, a Huaca could either be a river, a tree or a mountain to whom magical powers were conferred in the belief that there dwelled some divinity or ancestor. In the area of the coast, that designation was specifically used to name some scaled pyramids.

PROGRAM

 

PERU’S GOLD MUSEUM
Ancient Peruvians were master metalworkers. The “cire perdue” or lost wax process, known
across the Orient and lost in the West until the Renaissance, was the most frequent technique
used by master ancient Peruvian gold and silversmiths.

On our tour of Peru’s Gold Museum, visitors will appreciate a dazzling collection of gold
artifacts from various pre-Colombian civilizations, some more than 3,000 years old.

Metal pieces and Jewellery of incalculable value in gold, silver and precious stones used by the
Incas—the children of the Sun God and monarchs of the vast Inca Empire—are shown in this
collection.

Five hundred years ago, the gold of Peru attracted many European adventurers who conquered
the Inca and founded the Vice-Royalty of Peru under the Spanish Crown.

Peru’s Gold Museum also houses a valuable collection of old and modern weapons that ranks
among the best in the world. The halls in this section show the Arms of the World Collection of
armour, uniforms and various ancient war artifacts and weapons from various time periods
around the world, some dating back to as long ago as 1300 B.C.
