This museum houses and displays the remains and artifacts discovered in the ancient pyramid of the Lima culture.
The Huaca Pucllana Site Museum was created in 1984, as a result of research work begun in 1981 to safeguard the archaeological objects recovered and maintain a presence at the site to ensure their conservation. Since then, work has been carried out at this site, thanks to an agreement between the then National Institute of Culture and the Municipality of Miraflores.
General Borgoño 700, Miraflores.
The attractions to visit are:
The third part of the pyramid and the integrity of the lower part are conditioned with a tourist circuit that allows to know closely the diverse spaces used when the site was a ceremonial center. In some enclosures and patios there are life-size recreations of Lima culture settlers performing various activities, accompanied by photographs of the excavation process; this allows a clearer understanding of the past of this place.
The site has a small exhibition hall, inaugurated in 1984, which displays part of the findings made at the site. Most of the objects correspond to the Lima culture, highlighting the ceremonial jars, miniature mortuary offerings, ceramic sculptures of sharks and implements used in the sacrifices.
It is considered an important objective to show that aspects of the ancient cultures that inhabited Pucllana remain today, this is achieved by showing how the plants and animals that were cultivated and raised at that time are still an important part of the life of a Limeño or Peruvian today. Various plants such as corn, pacay, guava, tuna, tara, guarango, etc. are exhibited along with South American camelids, Creole ducks or "jokes" in the Muchik language, guinea pigs and Peruvian hairless dogs. These canids are now Cultural Patrimony of the Nation, but in the Huaca Pucllana they have been bred since before this, constituting a pioneering site in the conservation and revaluation of this native species.
The site has an exhibition and sales room for handicrafts made from various materials such as vegetable fiber, gourds, ceramics, wood and metals, as well as products made from native foods. Every weekend there are exhibitions and craft demonstrations where you can interact with the artisans.
