The Museum of the Nation (Museo de la Nación) is one of two major museums of Peruvian history in Lima, Peru. The other, larger, and more famous museum in Lima is the Peruvian National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology, and History.

The Museum of the Nation houses thousands of authentic artifacts spanning the entire span of human occupation in Peru, including an impressive collection of Moche, Nazca, and Wari ceramics. The museum also houses reproductions of many famous ancient Andean artifacts, most notably the Lanzón, a recreation of the burial chamber of the Lord of Sipan (El Señor de Sipán), and the famous Revolt of the Objects Mural.

The 6th floor of the museum currently houses the photographic exhibit "Yuyanapaq. Para Recordar." This exhibit was created by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission to document the internal conflict in Peru that occurred from 1980-2000.
