This museum boasts one of the most extensive collections of indigenous artifacts in Peru. It is filled to the brim with artifacts from tribes all across Peru (and other areas of the Amazon as well). The descriptions and texts within the museum are written in both English and Spanish.
If you are looking for a guide to help you go deeper into the experience, there is usually somebody around who can show you through.
Many tribes have sadly disappeared from the planet during years of colonialism, and change continues within the jungle regions at an unprecedented pace. For this reason, it is important that this museum exists in order to offer visitors insights into the many forms of wisdom that tribes of the Amazon have to offer to the world.
One of the great things about the museum is that it is full of texts that explore the myths and stories that have been channeled through thousands of generations. Therefore, this is a great place to start scratching the surface into what ancient people have to offer the world. Here you can gain perspective into a worldview that is different than what most Westerners are ready to understand. Through story, you can learn about the tribes, animals, plants, and spiritual life of people in the jungles.
Within the exhibitions, you’ll find musical instruments, textiles, and weapons. The museum has several sections so that you can explore. This includes individual tribes, their lineages, and get a glimpse of what parts of the jungle each group originally inhabited.
