  • Cusco is full of museums and that one of the obligatory for those who don't have time to visit all. Inside it's a bit of the rich Inca history. Has an interesting collection. Who want to have a greater knowledge it would be interesting to conduct the tour where explanations are made.

  • Is a great Museum, but recommend do it with a guide that can go explaining each room, because comes a time that you see so many things that you miss historically. Preferred

  • 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.
