The colorful entrance to Museo Larco in Lima
The Museo Rafael Larco Herrera is a privately owned museum in Lima.
The main collection features Pre-Columbian art, including items from the Moche and Chimu civilizations, which I'd learned about while touring temples outside Trujillo.
A visit to Museo Larco was among the first things I did in Lima, and that's not because it houses a well-known collection of erotic pottery (yes it was).
