Lambayeque's Huaca Chotuna-Chornancap museum to open next month

The On-site Museum of Huaca Chotuna-Chornancap archaeological site in northern Peru is expected to open in about thirty days, announced Lambayeque's regional tourism authority Celso Sialer Tavara.
The Museum project is funded by the provincial municipality of Lambayeque, Construyendo Peru government program and Unidad Ejecutora Naylamp 111 archaeological project.
“The opening has been delayed because we need time to finish the museum pamphlet. In 30 days, we hope to open this museum for regional, national and international tourism,” Celso Sialer told Andina.“We have invested less than 200,000 soles in this project; but as we get more funds, we will be able to improve it,” he said.
The museum will display some 33 remains of human sacrifices, as well as ceramic objects discovered during recent excavations at the archeological complex of Huaca Chotuna-Chornancap.Sialer Tavara detailed that the museum was built on a 200 square meter area and its façade features a faithful replica of the Temple of the Frisos' façade, an ancient pre-Incan mural discovered in this area in 1940.
