It is located in calle Tacna, formerly called Mercaderes. The Casona Miguel Grau Museum owns one of the most important historical relics of Peruvian culture.

This house belonged to the grandfather of our famous hero Miguel Grau Seminario, where he was born and spent most of his life. The singular square-shaped house was severely affected by the earthquake of 1912, being almost destroyed and abandoned. After many years began its reconstruction in charge of the Peruvian Navy, delivering it the 27 of July of 1989 with the name that at the moment has.

The museum contains a valuable historical collection, among which is the letter of Carmen Carvajal (wife of the Chilean killed in the battle of Angamos), the garden, the room of our hero and his birth cradle, the sword that belonged to Miguel Jerónimo Seminario, photographs of the great and luxurious parties celebrated in 1906, and the replica of the majestic monitor Huáscar. The museum is under the administration of the Peruvian Navy through the Command of the First Naval Zone.
