Add to your Machu Picchu historical experience with a visit to Casa Concha Museum, a museum dedicated to relics and artifacts from the Inca period. The museum had a shipment of Inca artifacts delivered from Yale University in 2012, the conclusion to a longstanding battle between Cusco and Yale. Upon his discovery of Machu Picchu in 1911, Hiram Bingham-- an archaeologist and lecturer at Yale--excavated around 4,000 artifacts and relics and took them to Yale University. The pieces, which include pottery, weaponry, and tools, are acompanied by several videos and original photographs from Bingham’s expedition. Each room includes explanations in English.
