The information we were given was great and the presentation was awesome. However, since it is a planetarium, if you cannot view the stars at all due to clouds, a reduced rate should apply. Otherwise it was very good.

If you are someone who wonders about the stars, then this is something to take a look at. the staff in this place are quite knowledgeable of the southern hemisphere skies. We go to see many planets and constellations that cannot be seen in North America. Go here before you do any hike to the mountains. It will get you... More

This is a project created by a local family of Cusco, perfect for amateur astronomous and curious people about the southern sky. The session takes about 2 hours and is divided into three parts: Light explanation about cosmic Inka culture, constellation observation on the dome and star observation on the external telescopes. On the night I visited the Planetarium the... More

The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable about astronomy. After learning about the Southern Hemisphere stars in the Planetarium, head outside to see the stars live and in person. During our visit, we got to see Mars and Venus, along with a host of constellations.

The Cusco Planetarium is definitely work checking out. It costs 50 soles (only about $15 USD). They pick you up in the center of Cusco, drive you out to the Planetarium, and they give you a detailed explanation of how the Inca used the night sky and the constellations. Really cool to check out before hiking the Inca Trail. The... More

If you are in Cusco and have a few hours to spare in the evening, this is a must do. The planetarium is run by a family and I must say that the tours are conducted very professionally. The planetarium and restrooms were very clean and cutely decorated.The tour groups are not very large, hence the entire time it feels... More

They very informative and very knowledge about. The Planetarium dome was amazing! It... More

We were treated to a great show. The sky was clear enough for us to see Venus, Mars and Saturn as well as a couple of star clusters. How amazing to see Saturn's rings! The star gazing was preceded by a talk on the importance of stars to the ancient peoples and followed by a view of the night sky... More

If you like navigation / astronomy / history / this is for you. The Incas life surrounds the predictions of seasons and nature. This is a must if you seek knowledge of the culture.
