* What is Hosting the Hall of Nations?
As part of our mission, "to promote the Peruvian culture with the community at large, while promoting tourism and creating awareness of Peru's rich and varied heritage." We get the chance to have the Hall of Nations, which is a building shared by the 34 nations that form the House of Pacific Relations (HPR) and which we are part of, to promote our beloved Peru. Our dedicated volunteers joyfully share information about Peru to the visitors at Balboa Park. The typical question is : "where can I find a Peruvian restaurant?" among others. It's a great moment to show them all the books about Peru we have, as well as Peruvian artifacts.
