Free Entry to Museums Every First Sunday for Peruvian Citizens

Free Entry to Museums Every First Sunday for Peruvian Citizens

Mike Dreckschmidt

Every first Sunday of every month, Peruvian nationals may now enter government administrated archaeological sites, museums, and historic places for free.

A new law that was introduced by Congressman Juan Sheput of Peruanos Por El Kambio (the incumbent president’s party) was approved and allows all Peruvian citizens to enter all government administrated archaeological sites, museums, and historic places for free on the 1st Sunday of every month. The law goes into effect tomorrow, July 1st.

The law does not permit free entrance to Machu Picchu National Park, but reduced prices for Peruvian citizens still apply.

El Comercio reports that before this law, only students, teachers, persons with disabilities, and senior citizens could enter for free.

This is a welcome initiative to promote internal tourism and provide an incentive for Peruvian citizens to visit their lesser-known but no less important historic places. Unfortunately for many expats, the deal does not apply for residents who are not Peruvian citizens.

If you are Peruvian, July 2nd is the first day to take advantage of this new opportunity. If you have Peruvian friends, spread the word…and if you are a resident, but not a citizen, accompany a Peruvian friend to a museum you have always wanted to visit!
