  • So expensive that we didnt even bother going in. Place was very quiet, no other guests. We did have a lovely lemonade at the cafe though.
  • Cool summary of Peruvian pre Columbian history
  • Great museum
  • 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!
