The largest museum in Peru, the Museo de la Naci贸n features four floors of history and exhibits in a large, sprawling building in the San Borja neighborhood of Lima. Of particular interest are the sections on pre-Spanish life in the area, including scale models of Peru鈥檚 major archaeological sites and artifacts from them. The galleries often feature temporary exhibits as well. The museum provides a fairly complete overview of Peruvian history and culture.
