Brüning National Archaeological Museum Tours
Read MoreShow Less
During the late 19th and early 20th century, German archaeologist Hans Heinrich Brüning Brookstedt devoted his life to Northern Peru. For decades, Brüning would toil tirelessly along the desert coastline in search of ceramics and cultural artifacts from the Moche, Chimu and Inca. Today, the Brüning National Archaeological Museum is where visitors can view the astounding finds of his years of digging in the dirt.
In addition to the rooms full of cultural treasures—including a room filled entirely with gold—the lower layer showcases Brüning’s photography from years of work in the field. Many credit Brüning with being a catalyst for the area’s archaeological study, and many of the sites that have been uncovered today could be in part to his dedicated work. Unlike the neighboring Royal Tombs of Sipan Museum, photography is allowed inside the Brüning Museum, and visitors should make an effort to visit both sites during a museum tour of Chiclayo.
The Brüning National Archaeological Museum is located seven miles from the center of Chiclayo in the town of Lambayeque. Public buses make the 20-minute drive on a convenient, regular schedule and will drop visitors within walking distance of the well-marked museum entrance. Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day except holidays, and there is an entry fee of 8 Nuevo Soles ($3) for general admission or 20 Nuevo Soles ($7) with a guide.
