Headquarters edit

From 1956 until the mid-1990s, its main headquarters were in the Javier Alzamora Valdez Building, a skyscraper located in the historic centre of Lima.

In the mid-90s, it moved to a new headquarters where the Institute for Research and Development of Education (INIDE) operated, located in the San Borja District until 2011, when a new building was inaugurated to the north of the San Borja District, next to the Museum of the Nation. Previously, at the end of the 2000s, some offices moved to the Administrative Complex of the Public Fisheries Sector to later move to the new headquarters in the form of stacked books. Finally, all the administrative areas of the ministry were transferred to the new headquarters where the ministry works to this day.
