The Pachacamac Museum is organized thematically showing the entire cultural sequence of the Pachacamac Sanctuary, from around 200 A.D. to the establishment of the Incas in 1470. In 1533 the Spaniards arrived at Pachacamac and the process of its abandonment began.
The Pachacamac museum serves as a prelude to the visit to the Sanctuary, explains its importance and shows the main archaeological findings from the site. It highlights the idol of Pachacamac and the door of fabric ornamented with Spondylus shells, both from the excavations carried out in the Painted Temple by Alberto Giesecke.
Other highlights of the Pachacamac museum are the series of sculptural ceramic offerings dating from the Wari period (700 – 1100 A.D.), which include representations of fish, characters and plants. Likewise the series of Inca quipus coming from an enclosure near the Palace of Taurichumpi.
