The old Colonial mansion housing this museum was an old residence of Peru 's viceroys and then of its Liberators. This is Peru 's grandest museum and houses the Estela Raymondi and the Tello Obelisk monuments, two important carved stone pieces dating back to the Formative period 1000 years B.C. It features the largest textile collection, with fabrics from the Pre-Ceramic period through the Inca Empire, and a major collection of Ancient Peruvian metals. The remarkable Tawantinsuyo Room illustrates one hundred years of the Inca Empire through virtual models and re-creations.
