We visited this museum after we viewed the ruins of Chan Chan. We had a guide, which is important if you only speak English. He explained what we say and referred back to areas of the ruins that we had previously seen. The ruins and museum combined provide an interesting overview of the culture of the times.

We recommend this trip.

This museum offers a good overview of Chimu society (870 to 1470 AD). Especially the maquette of Chan Chan, an adobe town which once used to have 10,000 dwellings is worth while. Urban development eventually conquered by the Incas in 1471.

Admission fee 10 Soles (no discount for seniors).
Easily reached by local bus from Trujillo or Huanchaco (stops in front of the museum).

We visited after seeing ruins of Chan Chan I had hoped for more interesting artifacts from the tombs but later found that those are mostly at another museum, still this is included in the ticket to Chan Chan and is nearby so worth a visit.

Affordable, 10 soles per entry when I went with Peruvians. Museum is on the small side, does not take long to go through. It's worth it to pay for a guide to explain more of the artifacts/history for both the museum and actual ruins nearby.

It will take you about 30 minutes to visit the entire museum, and is an excellent closure for a visit to Chan Chan, on the way back to the city. They have a beautiful Peruvian naked dog, that looks like a sculpture.

After visiting the Chan Chan Ruins, I walked to the museum. You can enter with the same ticket. There's explanation in Spanish and Enligh. In the room with the scale model, they display a movie that interacts with the mini ruins! Really cool

After having visited the Palace temples of Chan Chan this museum is a good accompanying visit to fill out the narrative of the Chimu civilization that prospered pre Inca conquest. To illustrate, the Inca captured the king and 26,000 craftspeople and took them to Cuzco to work for them and keep the rest of the city state in line. Their influence was immense in North coastal Peru. The aerial view of the compounds of Chan Chan confirm the immenseness of just this one site along the Moche River valley.

Just driving into Chan Chan you passed partial walls still standing. The site of the main structure was impressive in size and layout. Tour guide was a little over the top in my opinion, but did point out the various areas well. Museum was smallish, but still interesting.

This is a good place if you are interested in archeaology and the pre-Incan cultures of Peru. Artifacts, and then go see the site.

This little museum has only replicas of artifacts found at the archaeological site, but they are good replicas and I'm glad to have seen them.

Our tour guide guided us through the museum as well as the site itself. That was a big plus. He pulled together all of the information very clearly so that we learned a lot without having to work at it.
