To attract more tourists to the Royal Tombs Museum of Sipán, located in the city of Lambayeque, an itinerant exhibition of the replicas of the tomb will be held in November in Panama.
This exhibit will last for three months and it will have two scenarios: a small summary-type exhibition at the international airport of Tocumen; and another one in the most important mall in Panama: The Albrook Mall.
This was informed by the director of the museum complex, Walter Alva, according to Andina News Agency.
In addition, he said that the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism of Peru (Mincetur) has pledged their support and hope that this exhibition will help promote the visit to Chiclayo, through direct flights the Panamanian airline Copa has available to Lambayecan twice a week.
Andina explained that the exhibition, which will cover Sipan and the Moche Route, will remain one month at the airport and the remaining months in the mall. “I think Sipán’s exhibition has to be Lambayeque’s embassy in all of South America and the main cities of Peru,” he added.
This is not the first time an exhibition is built to bring visitors to Sipán. According to Alva, 15 years ago the same was done in Quito, Ecuador and more than 150,000 visitors traveled to the tomb.
