They come into an inconspicuous street in Lima’s Comas district in the Collique neighborhood. Comas belongs to the poorer districts of Limas, Collique is located on the eastern edge. One rather does not suspect that there is a museum there, and in fact, the Museo de los Colli is the only one in this area.
So you stop in front of an inconspicuous house in this inconspicuous street and climb up a gray stone staircase. There is a white sign on the door, barely more than a piece of paper wrapped in paper: Museo de los Colli.
The door opens, now you are in the private house of Enrique Niquin Castillo. On the walls hang drawings, which the hobby researcher has made himself, on tables are various objects: clay pots, stone tools, skull, a kind of altar. Other rooms are similarly bare, only the objects on shelves and behind glass impress.
The museum is absolutely limited to the essentials: the remains of an ancient culture, nothing more. No posters, glossy photographs, sophisticated lighting. And that is exactly what makes his charm.
