Small museum, but the exhibit on Peruvian Gold was great and worth the price of admission.

We truly enjoyed the exhibit. It was interesting and informative. Additionally the staff at the museum were lovely. I came with my 93 year old mother, and they were extremely caring and considerate of her needs.

We enjoyed it, although expected to see more gold. There was a lot to read. The artifacts, jewelry and customs were interesting.
