Bacteria and fungi are a potential risk to archaeological material and museum workers in Lambayeque, Peru. In order to quantify the isolated environmental microbiology of the Tumbas Reales de Sipán museum, four warehouses were sampled with Nutritive Agar and Papa Dextrose Agar, incubated at 30 °C in aerobiosis for up to 7 days for bacteria and up to 10 days for fungi. Bacteria were quantified with a maximum of 2.7x104 CFU cm-2 on the floor and wall surfaces, 1.4x103 CFU m-3 in the air and filamentous fungi with a maximum of 7.5x104 CFU cm-2 on the surfaces and 9.1x104 CFU m-3 in the air. Bacterial genera were isolated and identified: Bacillus, Micrococcus, Acinetobacter, Nocardia, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus and Streptomyces and the filamentous fungal genera: Aspergillus, Cladosporium, Circinella, Syncephalastrum, Penicillium, Cyrryspunrichum, Cyrrysopositive, Cyrrysylopola Rushingum, Cyrrysophyllizum, Nigrospora, Stachybotrys, Gliocladium and Verticillium.
