All about Chavin culture
Most people making a day trip from Huaraz to Chavin de Hunatar to see the remnants of this ancient civilization does not miss a visit to this small but interesting museum representing the local culture from the Stone Age up to the Chavin civilization. The museum is housed in a modern interesting building just a short walk from the historic ruins.

An interesting exhibit is a model of the whole site that will make you an idea of how it looked here in the times of the biggest glory.
The most valuable and interesting exhibits are ancient obelisks. The most famous of these is Obelisco Tello.

Stone slabs with engravings
