Museo de Plantas Sagradas, Magicas y Medicinales, Cusco

4.2
#16 of 25 in Museums in Cusco
Peruse the exhibits on display at Museo de Plantas Sagradas, Magicas y Medicinales to discover hundreds of years worth of Incan herbal, medicinal, and ritual practices. The museum offers a comprehensive catalogue of the hallucinogens, medicinal plants, and sacred plants used by the Incans, as well as their purported effects. You can also discover which members of the Inca empire had access to the revered ceremonies. Get an idea of what the ayahuasca experience entails, without actually sampling the hallucinogen, at the colorful kaleidoscopic exhibit. Pack a phrase book to help interpret the museum's Spanish-only information, or, alternatively, arrange a private guided tour in English. Take the guesswork out of planning a Cusco vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • The Museum more important information of medicinal plants of the Peru. No doubt the medicinal plants are setting aside but we should know and use them. Excellent place

Where to stay in Cusco

One of Peru's most visited cities, Cusco boasts lodgings suitable for every traveler's needs. Scores of hotels ensure plenty of comfortable rooms for tourists coming to explore the nearby archeological sites. Despite the abundance of hotels, room rates remain among the highest in the country, especially during peak season (June to mid-September). Budget-conscious visitors can choose from a range of hostels and small family-run hotels, many located in quiet streets just a walk away from the town's central area.
