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
