Until its Sipán treasures were removed and transferred to the new Tumbas Reales Museum 2 blocks away, this was the preeminent museum in northern Peru. Without its star attraction, the museum, founded in 1966, no longer draws crowds, but it still retains some important archaeological finds, such as Sicán masks from Batán Grande, excellent Moche ceramics, and an assortment of artifacts found at Tucumé. The collection includes some 1,500 items from the Lambayeque, Moche, Chavín, Vicus, and Inca civilizations. Some pieces date back 10,000 years.
