Peru is a country rich in history and culture, and one of the best ways to dive deep into its heritage is by visiting its museums and art galleries. From ancient artifacts to contemporary masterpieces, Peru offers a wide range of experiences for art and history enthusiasts.

One of the must-visit museums in Peru is the Larco Museum in Lima. This museum houses an impressive collection of pre-Columbian art, including ceramics, textiles, and gold and silver pieces. The museum's lush gardens and unique setting in a colonial mansion make it a truly enchanting place to explore.

Another gem in Peru's museum scene is the Museo de Arte de Lima (MALI). This museum showcases a diverse collection of Peruvian art spanning from pre-Columbian times to contemporary pieces. MALI is a great place to get a comprehensive overview of Peru's artistic evolution.
