    The Gold Museum itself is great and defintely a must in Lima. The guide was also a nice person. However the tour was too short and, *unacceptable*, does not include a guided tour through the Weapons of the World museum, which could be even more interesting as the collection is really extense (even bigger than Gold's). The guide left us with only 20 minutes to visit the entire collection by ouselves, which is clearly insufficient. One word: frustrating.
