This Sunday, and every first Sunday of the coming months, numerous museums around the country will waive entrance fees.
Thanks to Museos Abiertos (Open Museums), an initiative of Peru’s Ministry of Culture, locals and visitors to Peru can enjoy free entrance to numerous museums throughout the country this Sunday. The initiative announced that this promotion will occur the first Sunday of every month.
Take advantage of the offer and discover something new. The Museo de Sitio Arturo Jiménez Borja-Puruchuco, located in Ate (about 40 minutes from Lima’s city center), will lay out thematic board games to discover more about cultural heritage. As well, friends and family can dress up in traditional Inca costume for a memorable photo session. The first site museum in South America, visitors can enjoy a walk around the Puruchuco archaeological site, once an Inca ceremonial space.
Museos Abiertos was created in response to the approbation of Law N° 30599, requiring that State-run museums as well as archaeological and historical sites offer free entrance the first Sunday of each month.
