  • The Planetarium is located about 10 minutes drive from the tourist centre of Cusco, but the ticket includes roundtrip transfers. The information is very interesting, especially the part and that is the way the Incas saw the sky. Recommend a visit. Is a private space, managed by a family quite friendly with visitors.

  • Is a family business full of knowledge about astrology. They seek people in the Centre of Cusco and lead to the Planetarium. A very nice guide will tell you in two languages on the history of Cusco and shows the constellations in a very impressive by the size of the place. Worth the visit

  • This is an instantly welcoming family run place. You're treated more as a guest than a customer. The guides are very consice and extremely knowledgeable in not only the classic maritime astronomy but also the incan. They also have 2 spectacular dogs roaming around the grounds as you use the telescopes. A great way to spend a few hours before dinner
  • Good service and introduction to astronomy. It was cloudy when we went so didn't get to see much. Communication was a little spotty, they used WhatsApp but was non responsive when it came time to meet up
  • Uruguay
  • Bring the kids! You will be thrilled when you see Uranus ' oval halo and the surface of the moon through an astronomical telescope. Staff very friendly, passionate science lectures! Cusco's most memorable tour of the museum!
