Museo de la Nacion

Today I went to a really big ugly museum called Museo de la Nacion.  It was ugly (on the outside), but huge, and I expected it to be full of museumy goodness.  I was not correct.  Of the nine floors, there were exhibits on 1, 3, 4, and 6.  There wasn’t an overall map or anything, you just had to walk in a direction and see if there was something over there.  Sometimes they had employees stationed saying “don’t go this way” or “the next exhibit is on floor 4” – overall very weird!

So overall, I wouldn’t recommend going there.  On the plus side, it was free, and it did have a few good exhibits, but it was not a good overview of Peruvian history.  I think I am going to write about each of the exhibitions individually.


  1. Well from the outside it certainly looks dystopian… Makes you wonder what the other 5 floors were used for….
