Loved it, but I am a science geek so may not be everyone's cup of tea. It is more of a shop than a museum in many ways, but the museum part is a lot of reading, and that takes a lot of time. But...More

If you are wondering if chewing coca leaves will help you climb the Andes with extra energy and a great mental state this museum is an excellent stop. I loved the beginning video which shows the importance of plants in daily life and in honoring...More

At S/15 per person, I thought this museum was overpriced. It is a relatively small space that I felt focused too much on coca and then just chucked in some information on a couple of other things as an afterthought. While all the displays are...More

Thought this might be interesting however, not everything was translated in this self-guided small museum. Some exhibits (like the history of Coca-Cola) were very interesting to look at. Not worth the price of admission.

...and this is not what I want. S/.15, way too much reading materials (and Its not easy reading...) and very very limited plants. Unless you are an enthusiast with reading about different types of plants, I won't recommend it.

Very nice museum, I enjoyed visiting. There is not a lot in terms of objects on display, but the texts throughout the museum (in English and Spanish) were fascinating. I learned a lot. Recommend it!

I had many questions about medicinal plants from the Andes and the Amazon. Visiting the museum answered all of them and expanded my perspective. Of course there is a lot of information in the panels, but if you want to really know about magical plants,...More
