Museo de sitio del Qoricancha, Cusco

3.1
#13 of 26 in Museums in Cusco
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.

    Small museum located housed in the Archaeological Site of Qorikancha, has five rooms which explain didactically the history of peoples who lived in the region, the collection includes mummies, Pre parts along Incas, along Incas and colonial, with many pottery shards, pieces of metalwork, textiles, paintings, carvings, idols, jewelry, musical instruments and found objects from the excavations at the archaeological site of Qorikancha. The rooms are quite dark and not allowed to photograph or film on the site.

    False signs, very little information, 5 rooms with little or no relation to the Qoricancha. I am Peruvian and I recommend our foreign visitors that they exclude this Museum of his visit. Bad and sad that this museum is included in the ticket.

    For 5 soles per person you pay you a guide that it tells you the history of the place. It is amazing how there was difference between the nobility and the incas. Since they were born did things in his head (like tie them to form and grow in a different way) and can be recognized as noble! Super good seriously not miss it!

    Little museum with lot of history. It has basics of everything inka; jewelry, pottery, clothing, foods, architecture, mummies, surgeries and religion. We used our "general ticket" that allows to visit 14 different locations for 130 soles and those 130 soles were best spent soles.

    Excessive trouble getting ticket, and apparently, because I don't have an isic card, I don't count as a student. This has never happened anywhere else in international travel and really sours the whole visit.

    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.
