  • the way of Maras saw a giant statue that caught my attention, I stopped and saw that was the Inkariy, which was not included in my package. According to my Guidebook this museo is lush!

  • We liked it so much, is a way to learn about cultures that inhabited Peru much more ancient than the Inka.

  • Living Urubamba life all the way. We enjoy people, food, light, geography. Love Valle Sagrado. Close to everything that have to be seeing. Nice weather.

  • This is a must stop visit prior to going to Machu Picchu. It puts the ruins in perspective.
  • Learn about pre-inca tribes in a brand new museum, just outside of Calca. Well worth a visit!
  • Great museum!
