Description

The Larco Museum (Spanish: Museo Arqueológico Rafael Larco Herrera) is a privately owned museum of pre-Columbian art, located in the Pueblo Libre District of Lima, Peru. The museum is housed in an 18th century vice-royal mansion built over a 7th century pre-Columbian pyramid. It showcases chronological galleries that provide a thorough overview of 4,000 of Peruvian pre-Columbian history. It boasts one of the world's largest collections of pre-Columbian art including Moche, Nazca, Chimú, and Inca pieces. Additionally, the Larco Museum is well known for its gallery of pre-Columbian erotic pottery.

It was one of the first museums in the world to make its entire 45,000 piece collection available in an online electronic catalog.

Museo Larco is one of the few museums in the world that allows its visitors to go into its classified storage area (pictured here). The opportunity to see 45,000 objects duly arranged, catalogued and classified by culture and theme becomes an extraordinary and unforgettable experience.
