The Tumbas Reales de Sipán Museum, or Royal Tombs Museum of Sipán in English, is considered among the 10 most important modern museums in the world, according to information from Andina News Agency.
“Together with the bones, more than 2,000 pieces were found among jewels, ceramics, clothing and other objects that make up the funerary trousseau of this ruler of ancient Peru, whose unprecedented discovery was compared to that of the Egyptian pharaoh Tutankhamun”, the news agency said.

During 2017 this cultural venue received nearly 150,000 tourists.
