It is a Peruvian archaeological museum inaugurated in 2002, it is located in the city of Lambayeque, Region of Lambayeque. Its architectural design has been inspired by the ancient truncated pyramids of the pre-Inca Mochica culture (1st to 7th century AD). The museum concentrates more than two thousand pieces of gold. The purpose of the museum is to show the tomb of the Lord of Sipan, which was found in 1987 by Peruvian archaeologists Walter Alva Alva and Luis Chero Zurita. Among its pieces are jewelry, ceramics and grave goods. The discovery of the Royal Tombs of the Lord of Sipan marked an important milestone in the archeology of the continent, because for the first time the magnificence and majesty of the only ruler of ancient Peru found until that date was revealed.

Then we will go to Huaca Rajada, which was an area devastated by huaqueros or huacas thieves, until in 1987 the Peruvian archaeologist Walter Alva and his team, with the help of the authorities, undertook a project to rescue the archaeological site. The result of his research was the discovery of the famous tomb of the Lord of Sipán (July 26, 1987), the only tomb of a pre-Columbian governor found intact in Peru and dating from the third century (Tomb 1). It is about a man of 1.65 m, and about 40 to 45 years old. He was found next to the remains of 8 people (three women, two men, one child and two guardians) and animals (two llamas and a dog), presumably sacrificed so that they would continue to serve him in the afterlife, according to the belief moche. The remains of the Lord of Sipan rested in the center of a mortuary chamber, sheltered in a large coffin made of large boards. On the other hand, the catafalque of his companions were made of reeds. They also found 209 ceramics, many of which contained offerings. The body of the main character was covered with numerous ornaments, weapons and emblems of gold, silver and golden copper.

Also, spondyllus shells, of ritual significance, were surrounded by the body. The most lavish jewels are the earmuffs, all in gold with lapis lazuli inlays. Another exquisite piece is a necklace of beads in the shape of peanuts or peanuts, half of them in gold and the other half in silver. Months after this discovery, two more tombs were found: that of a contemporary priest to the Lord of Sipan (Tomb 2), and that of a warrior who was baptized as the Old Lord of Sipan, because he was older (Tomb 3).
