Peru Gold Museum Tour
Overview of the 1-day tour to the Peruvian Gold Museum

Inside are exhibited objects and jewelry of incalculable value, worked in gold, silver and precious stones, highlighting the ornaments and objects used in their time of splendor by the Incas, sons of the Sun God and monarchs of the vast Inca Empire.
