Not too in depth, but a great history from geological times through Spanish Colonization. Some good historical facts and an inteesting collection. It's part of your Tourist Ticket, so might as well visit if you've time.

We ducked in here to escape the rain and wound up staying for a worthwhile visit. If you want to understand the various cultures that have inhabited Peru over the years, this is a good place to start. Well laid out and cheap.
