Museo Inka, Cusco

3.9
#2 of 25 in Museums in Cusco
With a neatly and informatively displayed permanent collection, Museo Inka lets you learn about the culture and civilization that rose here in the early 13th century, dominating the region until the Spanish arrival in the late 16th century. Set in a site containing ancient Incan foundations, the museum showcases a good array of artifacts, including jewelry, pottery, textiles, and mummies, as well as educational models and reconstructions. Buy handicrafts made onsite by highland Andeans employing traditional weaving and carving methods to make pieces that represent excellent souvenir ideas.

  • While there are interesting artifacts, the graphics are poorly done. Also 98% of descriptions are in only Spanish. Luckily we went with our guide so learned a lot. This museum was not nearly as well d...  more »
  • The Museum does not have anything fancy, but that's not the focus ... the collection of parts and information are rich in General and you never get out of there without knowing and delight yourself with these people!

  • Good Museum - need a little mantaince though, has a lot of features that were not working on my visit but are not necessary for me to recommend not to go. I did not get a travel guide but I will highly suggest for you, entrance is 10 soles per person.
  • Really interesting Museum. Cheap entry fee and learnt a lot of history.
  • This place is awesome! They have lots of great artifacts, relics, mummies as well as models of Inkan ruins like Machu Pichu. Definitely worth the visit, I found it more interesting than the more highlt touted Museo de Arte Precolombino. Only thing is some of exhibits don't have english translations, although it does not detract from the awesomeness of what is presented there.
  • The museum I enjoyed the most in Cusco, with interesting displays and photos. 10 Soles admission, definitely worth it.
  • Great history of peru telling more then just the incas. Cheap entrance fee of 10sol so I would definitely recommend doing
