(3.9/5 based on 900+ reviews on the web)
Museo Santuarios Andinos is famous for its collection of Incan ice mummies, including a 600-year-old frozen body of a young girl called Juanita. Start your visit with the film about this discovery and the history of the Incan child sacrifices to the mountain gods. Then, browse the exhibits of pottery, jewelry, textiles, and figurines, which were buried along with the mummies as funeral offerings. Exhibited in a refrigerated glass case in the last room, Juanita's body undergoes restoration every year, while another mummy takes her place. Plan your visit to Museo Santuarios Andinos and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Arequipa itinerary builder.

  • Great to see and learn more about Juanita. You have to pay for a guide and entrance, which is a bit expensive
  • Educational and interesting. Might be a bit expensive, as others stated, but worth the money.
  • A little bit expensive at 20 soles entry. There are tours in Spanish and English, tips are expected. Interesting artifacts and of course, Juanita!
  • It's 20 soles but I didn't get inside
  • Weird.
