Huaca Rajada (Sipan Tomb) vs the Royal Tombs of Sipan Museum

We have limited time in Chiclayo. Would we be missing much if we skip the tomb and only do the museum? If we included Hualca Rajada we would require an additional day in Chiclayo and wondered if it is worth it?

If you have a whole day in Chiclayo maybe you could do both? Huaca Rajada is in Sipan, an hour from Lambayeque where the museum is. We were going to go to the tomb but my husband wasn't feeling well so we went straight to Lambayeque (we were coming from Trujillo). We opted to stay in Lambayeque instead of in Chiclayo. Lambayeque is a nice town. We went to Tucume in the morning and the museum in the afternoon. Don't miss the museum.

Thanks Sonia, we would have a full day if we take the overnight bus to Chachapayos but we may also hire a driver to take us there earlier in the day, which doesn't afford us enought time to do both.

We took the overnight Movil Tours bus from Chiclayo to Chachapoyas. The bus was clean and comfortable and I don't remember any loud movies. I don't sleep well on a bus but I did manage to sleep a bit.
