Probably it's the only chance you'll have in your life to see these wonderful objects in the USA. Peruvian museums cooperated to put together this collection. It's not gonna happen again for a long time. I hope some of you can go.


Rich natural resources in ancient Peru gave rise to the earliest Andean civilizations. Building on that wealth, skilled artisans crafted extraordinary and beautiful objects, including gold ceremonial and funerary masks, beakers, and jewelry, rivaling anything made by the ancient Egyptians.
Archaeological finds over the past half century have begun to put these magnificent objects in context. Visitors will learn about the latest techniques for excavating tombs and examine how technology is offering new insights into the complex civilizations that existed in ancient Peru. The exhibition will journey through civilizations from 1250 B.C. to A.D. 1450, learning through the ceremonial gold, silver, ceramics, and textiles created by these sophisticated peoples.

what i'd like to know is this... if dragons are mythical, how were the peruvians, 2000 years ago, able to draw them so that we recognise what they are today? love stuff like this, thanks for the vid, unless they come to the uk i'll probably never get to see them, but nice to see them on youtube at least

Yes, I noticed too those dragons...., peruvian cultures are always intriguing.

I really hope this collection can go to UK one day. I'm aware how much British appreciate ancient cultures.

Lets hope all this gold doesn't end up refilling the empty Fort Knox vault.

Be great to go see these. Not all cultures made such extravagant things, I also like looking at any ancient rock carvings or ancient artifacts. Not everyone was an artist, their creations were just as important for me to see.
