  • It is a nice museum and since entry was included on our Boleto Turistico, we popped in and did not regret it. Some very good displays and artifacts. They also explain more about the 'Last Inca', Tupac...  more »
  • The Museum is small, but you can much of the history of the Incas and the cultures experienced before. It is included in the 130s map and worth a visit.

  • Excellent, modern and open minded museum in Cusco! It has beautiful displays, helpful staff and they also let you take photos, which is a luxury in Peruvian museums.
  • Excellent little museum and great display in courtyard showing world empires throughout history
  • Museum interesting but little entered price is included in the ticket you need to visit the various sites of the Sacred Valley so inexpensive and rewarding visit, but somewhere else in the Peru or the camera are "prohibited" However you will see that this rule is very little respected.
