Museo Arqueológico Hipólito Unánue - Museum Ayacucho - Peru

The small Museo Arqueológico Hipólito Unánue, set in the botanical garden of the Universidad, exhibits artifacts of the Wari, who were the rulers of these lands before the Inca conquest in the 15th century. Also featured are local finds of Chimú, Moche, Chavín, Ica, Nazca and other pre-Columbian cultures. The museum additionally has an anthropological section, exhibiting the clothing, artwork, customs and ceremonies of the Ayacucho (Huamanga) region. In the near-by library is a collection of funerary remains, including mummies.
