We are an Cultural interpretation center about how the Andean people understand the skies. The explanation in two rooms give us a great perspective, in dome we learn about southern sky and finally, if weather allows, we enjoy some stargazing!

What a friendly bunch! This is a family owned and operated business that relies on Trip Advisor for their business. The staff did an amazing job making us feel welcomed and they were so knowledgeable! A must go-to site in Cusco!

We had high hopes for visiting the Planetarium Cusco, however we were left bitterly disappointed. The Planetarium is located down an unlit dark road, its very unsafe to walk at a night, when we arrived at the Planetarium, there were multiple dogs walking around the...More

The family business is authentic and knowledgable. Actually, José might have been the best guide/presenter I have seen in South America! Get ready to learn a lot, question a lot and become even more excited about the universe! 100% worth it. Thank you :D

Really enjoyed this! It’s a tiny planetarium, family owned, so don’t expect to buy snacks or water! But I’d go again, learned about the Incan sky as well as all the constellations that are known today. Cool!

The tour was nice but definitely overpriced and too fast. We struggled to understand everything being said and we were hearded like cattle ...pace was too fast as they had a another group booked behind us.

There is a drive in the van from the city Square up to the planetarium, the show in the building and the sky gazing with their very good telescopes, all total, maybe just short of two hours.
