  • The museum was interesting with many historic artifacts. Not everything had English labels, but enough did to keep it clear.  more »
  • probably the best and most comprehensive Museum in Cusco, ask a guide to explain everything about the Museum, well worth!!

  • Great Museum, many parts much history to tell about the pre Inca and the history when already formed this civilization and the arrival of the Spaniards, there let him visit access is not expensive and you can take time to see all parts, unfortunately it is not possible to take photographs inside the rooms even if it is without flash. You should still go see it

  • 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.
