Learning about Tucume pyramids - Museo de Sitio de Tucume Aug 20, 2005
The most important pyramids of the Peruvian north coast are the ones located in Tucume, which was the urban center of a society of agricultures and sailors. And this museum is located where the pyramids were built. They are still excavating the area and discovering more and more things about this culture.
The museum’s building looks like a “ramada” ancient colonial chapels built by the local people according to their old own houses built with branches. Rama = branch.
The museum is small but contains a nice collection of artifacts found during the excavations of the Tucume pyramids. They also have pictures and maps of the area. This museum has more educational purposes. The entrance fee for students is US$1 and the regular one is US$2.50
You will start the tour visiting the pyramids, but don’t forget to take a look at the museum before leaving the complex.
