Gold Museum

Gold Museum

LimaHalf DayCultural

In the 1960’s Miguel Mujica Gallo, as a result of his increasing private collection, created the Fundacion Miguel Mujica, also called the Gold Museum of Peru and Weapons of the World, to exhibit ancient pieces from the former Peru and pieces from the Colonial and Republican eras.

The acquisition of more than seven thousand pieces was inspired by his admiration for the history of Peru. This devotion resulted in this collector to leaving a cultural legacy to Peru, a country of ancient goldsmiths. It is also a magnificent tribute to the Pre Columbian cultures of Peru. The exhibition shows different art manifestations made in different materials such as precious metals between gold, silver and platinum, textiles, ceramic, mummies (skeletons), funerary bundles and other valuable objects from this period.
Thus, he prevented the exportation of these valuable jewels, which would have resulted in the cultural heritage being lost forever.  This invaluable collection demonstrates what the Spanish conquistadors found when they arrived in Peru. The resulting encounter between the two great cultures gave maximum value to precious metals while enhancing the local work time to create religious objects, symbols of power, or utilitarian objects of art.

The exhibited pieces in the museum were mostly found during the Republican era and acquired by Miguel Mujica Gallo. Through them we have learned about the advance in metallurgy, customs, beliefs and the way of life during the pre Hispanic era.
