Peru’s Ministry of Culture assures that all 55 museums under its administration will be on a regular schedule during the long holiday weekend (July 28-30)

Peru’s Ministry of Culture announced that they will maintain regular schedules for museums during the long holiday weekend for Fiestas Patrias that begins on Friday, July 28th.

This means that Peruvians and expats living in Peru will be able to take advantage of the day off to visit any publicly administrated museum in the country.  Hours are generally from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If you need an idea, consider checking out MALI (Art Museum of Lima) which currently features the largest ever temporary exhibition on Nazca Culture.  They are also hosting 10 days of cultural activities and free admission in honor of Fiestas Patrias to make it worth your while.

Lima isn’t the only place you can find museums.  For those expats living in Northern Peru, Andina recommends the Royal Tombs of Sipan and Chan Chan.
