+Casa Grau Museum Piura headquarters, is located in a house that reflects and retains the nineteenth-century architectural style in northern Peru, located on Tacna Street, formerly called Mercaderes a few meters from the Plaza Mayor of Piura. This house belonged to the grandfather of our famous hero Miguel Grau Seminario, where he was born and spent most of his childhood.
Built at the beginning of the 19th century, the building originally belonged to Fernando Torcuato Seminario and Jaime, grandfather of Miguel Grau. This property passed from generation to generation among the members of the Seminary family. The earthquake of 1912 affected considerably the structure of the Casa Museo, being almost destroyed and abandoned. By 1989, after many years of reconstruction by the Peruvian Navy, it was recovered, opening its doors on July 27 of the same year.
The Museum House presents a collection of goods, furniture, crockery and various objects of the period, objects that take visitors back to the 19th century; In the same way, it exposes a renewed museographic script where the history of the Seminar family stands out until the birth of Miguel Grau and also presents the effort made by the Navy of Peru, for the restoration and enhancement of said cultural center.
