Museo de sitio del Qoricancha, Cusco

(3.2/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Qorikancha, the most revered temple of the Incan Empire, comes to life at Museo de sitio del Qoricancha. Consisting of five rooms, the museum displays artifacts from the excavation of the Incan temple. Originally the temple was lavishly decorated, with the inner walls lined with gold and golden statues decorating the gardens. Most of the gold was given to the Spanish as a ransom for Atahualpa, which left artifacts of pottery, textiles, and mummies to be found during the excavation. These items are now displayed in the museum not far from the actual site where they were unearthed.

  • You pay to enter, but everything that you have access to contemplate it is worth, this Mint Center and also has a view from the inside, that vaaale much worthwhile

  • It has good information and variety in objects of the time but becomes rather short explanations and other. It is cute and you find out things from their culture.

  • It is a small museum, everything is stacked, missing information, audio guides or travel guides. Not recommended for the claustrophobic. If you bought the ticket, and you are in the city of Cusco, then it will be half an hour, but if you didn't do this purchase, not worth paying to enter.

  • Small museum which can be visited only with the "Boleto Turistico". One of the most interesting part is the exhibition of skulls with operation marks from the inka time. It is described how the inkas performed skull operations on their people who survived the treatment. Three quite good preserved inka mummies are also part of the exhibition.
  • Spectacular to explore and learn a bit of history.
