(200+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
Visit the small Museo De La Coca to learn about the role coca plays in Peruvian culture. Spread across two floors, the exhibits showcase the use of coca leaves in Peru and the history of the plant. View the information, available in English and Spanish, about the plant's medicinal and culinary uses, as well as its role in the production of cocaine. If you don't wish to chew on the plant itself, stop by the small gift shop, where you can purchase an array of coca-laced delicacies, such as chocolates, liqueurs, and beers. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Cusco holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Museo De La Coca and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • EXCELLENT place to meet no more than 20 minutes difference between coca and cocaine, the store is very economic and has lots of variety. VERY good service.

  • If you ask around Cusco nobody knows, but it exists, and is located on the Hill of San Blas on the square of the Church. Small and simple Museum with some objects on display, in itself not very interesting. Though I really liked the guy who tells all about Coke. A happy return by taxi (4/5 soles), unless you like to take a hike!

  • Not very informative, claims to be the only coca museum world wide (but isn't) - overall not worth the money
