  • It is interesting to visit the Museum, the history is very well explained and there are many objects to observe. It runs through in 1 hour

  • 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.
