Museo Inka, Cusco

3.9
#2 of 30 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.

  • Needs an upgrade, photos should be allowed, because there's actually some worthwhile things to see. Also a nice shop with handmade music instruments from (pre)Inca times.
  • Interesting museum with good organization of information to provide introduction of Inca/pre-inca culture to visitors. English presented. Highly recommended for those interested to know more Inca culture.
  • A very simple museum with very limited explanation on the displayed objects.
  • Really good museum with lots of information both in english and spanish about all cultures living in the Inka Empire area. Entry 10 soles
  • You can't take photos or videos, but you can read all about the inka and pre-inka history
