Museo Contisuyo - Museum Moquegua - Peru

In the ruins of the city’s old cathedral is the privately owned Museo Contisuyo. This well-organized museum exhibits 12,000 years of gold jewelry, ceramics and other archaeological artifacts of the nations that inhabited this region, including the Tiwanaku, Wari, Chiribaya and Inca. Also on display are several mummies. The collections of basketry, textiles and wooden tools are exceptionally well preserved. Museo Contisuyo also has a scale-model of Cerro Baúl, an ancient site that still holds religious significance.
