#15 of 26 in Museums in Cusco
Specialty Museum Museum
Learn about the prehispanic Peruvian people of the Inca empire at Casa Garcilaso. This small but charming historical museum displays a number of period items, from cookery pots and water jugs to Incan weaponry. Check out the multimedia presentations on their history, as well as a room dedicated to colonial artworks from the era. The building itself dates back to the 16th century, as evidenced by its Andalusian-style architecture. Restoration has kept it going after three different earthquakes in its long history.
