The Ancon Museum is a two floor building, with a square as a lobby to the museum’s entry. It is called the “Archaeologist’s Square.” The laboratory and the deposit of the archaeological materials were on the first floor. Nowadays, this floor is the exhibition gallery of the museum’s material. It also has an auditorium where there are the exhibitions of the drawings from the researches of the German archaeologists Reiss and Stubell. Children from different schools from Lima arrive to the auditorium to receive lectures. Didactic videos can complement the different information that they have seen in the exhibition galleries. The director’s office and the area where the archaeologists work are also in the first floor.
The principal permanent exhibition gallery is on the second floor. There is also a big terrace where you can observe the city of Ancon and the bay. During the summer months this terrace becomes a place where children take different dancing courses or activities that the museum organizes as an approach from the museum with the community. It permits that the younger members get familiar with Ancon and its importance.
