  • For once, I think, but it would not return. We saw a video of the moment in which the children were removed from mountain. There was only one exhibition, the girl of lightning.

  • The 100 pesos which is the buy-in worth paying it. Very educational and the effort to keep intact the found objects can be seen. It is shocking to see the State of conservation of the mummies.

  • Very good Museum, totally didactic, neat, dynamic, very well attended, with explanations, both excellent staff as is visual or reading material. Be able to see at least one mummy of the children of the lullayllaco, is shocking. Not to be missed-
