The director of the Brüning museum in Lambayeque, Carlos Wester La Torre, stressed that the most important part of this new and attractive space is that it exhibits what the ancient Lambayequean man has left for the future generations. He says that the best way of honoring our heritage is by incorporating it into our cultural lives.

Meanwhile, the director of the recently inaugurated museum Chotuna-Chornancap, Marco Fernández Manayalle, highlighted the active and enthusiastic participation of the townspeople of Bodegones, Ranchería, Yéncala León, La Ramara and El Guayo.
