Museo Inka, Cusco

3.9
#2 of 25 in Museums in Cusco
With a neatly and informatively displayed permanent collection, Museo Inka lets you learn about the culture and civilization that rose here in the early 13th century, dominating the region until the Spanish arrival in the late 16th century. Set in a site containing ancient Incan foundations, the museum showcases a good array of artifacts, including jewelry, pottery, textiles, and mummies, as well as educational models and reconstructions. Buy handicrafts made onsite by highland Andeans employing traditional weaving and carving methods to make pieces that represent excellent souvenir ideas.

  • Looks like a ghost Museum. With few visitors, dusty, poor lighting parts and missing explanations, the Museum has interesting parts but need care and maintenance. You can't take pictures (about that ok) and the central courtyard is full of old furniture. The highlight are the mummies, closed in a controlled environment.

  • It is interesting, but needs little maintenance care. Some models that had lights weren't working. Lacked some explanations. There was an entire room without without even the names of the tables

  • Good Museum - need a little mantaince though, has a lot of features that were not working on my visit but are not necessary for me to recommend not to go. I did not get a travel guide but I will highly suggest for you, entrance is 10 soles per person.
  • Really interesting Museum. Cheap entry fee and learnt a lot of history.
  • This place is awesome! They have lots of great artifacts, relics, mummies as well as models of Inkan ruins like Machu Pichu. Definitely worth the visit, I found it more interesting than the more highlt touted Museo de Arte Precolombino. Only thing is some of exhibits don't have english translations, although it does not detract from the awesomeness of what is presented there.
  • The museum I enjoyed the most in Cusco, with interesting displays and photos. 10 Soles admission, definitely worth it.
  • Great history of peru telling more then just the incas. Cheap entrance fee of 10sol so I would definitely recommend doing

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.
