Museo Larco / Larco Museum - Museum Lima - Peru

The Museo ArqueolĂłgico Rafael Larco Herrera, commonly known as the Museo Larco or Larco Museum, is one of the most popular in Lima. Set in a gorgeous old hacienda, the museum is the private collection of Rafael Larco Herrera. It is considered by many to be the largest and most complete collection of pre-Columbian artifacts and relics in the world. It is comprised of more than 40,000 pieces of pottery and 5,000 pieces of gold and textiles. Of particular interest is the section on erotic art and ceramics, politely set off from the rest of the exhibits by a garden. The pieces show that the early inhabitants of South America were quite uninhibited. The artifacts on display are quite interesting and occasionally humorous.
