The gallery exhibits of Museo Larco are chronologically ordered, so each area takes the visitor through ever-later periods of Peruvian history.

Exhibits include everything from basic pottery bowl to pottery works of art.  There are even galleries devoted to pre-Columbian erotic pottery and gold artifacts, a glimpse of which I’ll give you next Wednesday.  There are also exhibits displaying more useful items, such as arrow and spear tips.

Not everything in Museo Larco is pre-Columbian, however.  There are more modern works depicting Christian themes and Spanish nobility.
