3 Eras, one museum

A small muesum covering the pre-incans, incan and post incan lives. Most of the descriptions are in Spanish, some with English translations but is still interesting to look at.

I think this museum probably had some interesting artefacts, but I'm not sure as there wasn't really much information about what we were seeing - not even in Spanish. Not worth the money unfortunately.

The museum was interesting with many historic artifacts. Not everything had English labels, but enough did to keep it clear.

good way to escape the vendors in the plaza for an hour or so. Interesting artifacts and check out the Inca mummies. Inexpensive and easy to find.

Is the best museum in Cusco, I love visiting its facilities, the museum is well prepared, if you want to learn more about the history of the Incas visit the Inca Museum.

A small museum showcasing the way of life of the Incas and pre-Incas, and the history of Cusco. I was hoping for a bit more depth on how the walls were earthquake resistant and a few more engineering facts but this museum covers the basics only. An ability to read Spanish is an asset as not all the explanations are... More

Price is about 3.3 USD but get a guide! Many vitrines have little information even less in English.there are some very good English speaking guides in the museum, cost about 10USD or more, depending on your tip. You'll learn some amazing facts about the incas. Toilets are disastrous... Guys clean up those dunnies urgently! Worth going there to know about... More

We heard about the Inca Museum from our tour guide on our Inca Trail hike so after we returned we decided to check it out. There are lots of artifacts, depictions of how the Incas lived, and regional history of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. There is a small entrance fee and they are not open on Sunday. If you... More
