  • We had hoped that Museo Inca would give us a strong background in Inca history prior to exploring many of the sites in the Sacred Valley. Unfortunately, the displays are a bit lackluster and very much...  more »
  • This museum is located 1 block from the main square. There's a reasonable amount of Incan artifacts. Most of the descriptions are not in English, so brush up on your Spanish.  more »
  • Visited this museum on a free day in Cusco. It had a good amount of artifacts to see and was very interesting considering we had just done Machu Picchu and Scared Valley. The mummies were really cool ...  more »

  • We found an English-speaking guide in the museum and spent 1.5 hours with him. It's our 1st time here, so we were all ears and eyes. I think our attention made him very enthusiastic about his interpretation, so we learned a lot about Inka history and culture, as well as background for our hike to Macchu Pichu. Unfortunately we did not get his name, otherwise we highly recommend the guide.
  • Lot's of info about the inkas (to be honest inka was the name of the leader, and the people should be named the queshuas)
  • Insightful museums to better understand all South American civilizations. In particular Inka /qechua.
  • Excellent museum and it's huge. Best thing there's English translations!
  • Phenomenon. I learnt a lot about the Incas here. A very important museum
