  • The Museum is close to the Place of weapon. It is an old Museum, museography of wall cases, bad lighting, dusty atmosphere, but what is exposed is very high quality. A bit too many models, that Peruvians love, not quite readable explanations and chronology, but exceptional objects, including the Inca mummies that you can't see that. The death was not an end to the Incas, but the beginning of another life in the other world, like the ancient Egyptians with Ra (the Sun) was a major God. These mummies are folded over they same and not elongated as in Egypt old and dried in the Sun, squeezed into cloths. Various objects accompany them for this transfer. Museum specialists.

  • I recommend it for its variety of great handicraft collection of objects from the pre-inca period, inca textiles, agriculture tools and musical instruments Inca. Painting and metal objects from the colonial and Republican periods.

  • The museum is very rich with a variety of artifacts. You're not allowed to take photos inside. Staff focus more on supervising you as a guest rather than enhancing your experience.
  • As seems to be common I couldn't take any photos inside. That being said it's a stunningly complete look at pre-Incan to Incan history and world be excellent for school kids and any visitor interested in hour this great empire rise and fell
  • Great museum but missing a lot of artifacts. Have pictures instead. Great model of moray ruins.
  • Small museum that is definitely worth the entrance fee. Pre-inca and info on other sites not just Macho Picchu. Lovely setting. Not all exhibits translated into English. Mummies were cool!
  • Old school little museum. We really loved it. Especially liked the mummies and learning bits of history I didn't know. I learned a lot and appreciated the museum's laid back vibe in a lovely old building with a central courtyard.
