Museo Larco is a logical stop when visiting Lima, Peru.  This museum dedicated to pre-Columbian art (meaning before Christopher Columbus’ visit to the New World in 1492) was founded in 1926, and today Museo Larco contains artifacts spanning some 4,000 years of Peruvian indigenous history, and cultural displays going back another 6,000 years before even that.

But before you get to all that history you’ll pass through the gardens of Museo Larco, including the flower-covered exterior walls of the museum.
