All that glitters is not gold, silver weapons and precious stones also shine quite a bit! Find out for yourself at the Gold Museum of Peru in Lima and let the magpie inside you wander among treasures of the Inca and pre-Inca civilizations.
See more than 8,000 invaluable gold items that survived the Spanish conquest, including solid gold statues, statuettes, ornaments, plus pottery, clothing, mummies, and an exhibition of luxurious weapons from around the world.
Get an idea of the luxurious tastes of the civilizations that reigned in Peru and see magnificent objects made of solid gold, silver and gold-plated copper, magnificently exposed in this cultural institution.
From everyday objects to decorative ornaments, armor, funerary objects, jewelry and even clothing, there is more gold in this museum than in a Trump hotel in El Dorado!
There is also a permanent exhibition dedicated to the world’s weapons and armor, and features lances, swords, armor, daggers, revolvers, and cannons. Of course, many of these weapons have embedded gemstones and pretty grips made of … yes, you guessed it, gold!
