About
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!

This was a fun way to spend our last night in Cusco. Was it the most professional planetarium in the world? No. But it was a great evening spent with the guides who are obviously very passionate about the stars. It is a small family...More

I enjoy astronomy. I would only recommend this visit if you are into this. It's mostly educational. Also, go during the dry season when it isn't cloudy. If it's cloudy there won't be much to see in the skies.

The cheapest and best way is to organize the official tour from the planetarium. Call there and you can book your trip. It starts from Cuzco Place regocijo: Website of the planetarium;
