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
This is an interesting evening and presented by knowledgeable and enthusiastic people.
For that reason I give it 4 stars.
I knew little about astronomy and learnt a lot - the planetarium projections were quite interesting but the telescopes outside are very weather dependant.....a cloudy...More
Although we went on a rainy night and couldn't see the stars we were treated to a knowledgeable talk about the history of astronomy in the region and a very clever and high tech projector system that demonstrated numerous constellations and gave a much greater...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.
Do not expect super professional astrophysics here, but this group gave us an enjoyable tour and introduction to how the Peruvian people interpret the stars and space. We enjoyed getting to see the Southern cross, and they set up telescopes so we could see various...More
This ‘tour’ is way to overprized in my opinion. You will be told about how the Inka farmers used the stars for their agriculture, which is pretty nice to know. Then will be taken to a ‘dome’ to get some more information about formations of...More
First time stargazing and it was a very different experience. The staff at Planetarium was very knowledgeable and gave an interesting introduction on the Western and Inca astrology history.
I thought it was way too cold when we were outside stargazing even though we were...More
My family and I visited Cusco over Thanksgiving Break. I chose the Planetarium based on the great reviews from Trip Advisor, but I am not sure how they got excellent reviews. I think this place is very overpriced. The day we visited was cloudy so...More
some interesting facts but presented more for children than adults and a bit amateur.
The dome is small, which wouldn’t matter but I don’t think it’s smooth, which does matter. The projection is incredibly blurred and the stars lack any detail so u don’t really...More
Booked this through Viator. What a pleasant experience. We were able to see Saturn's rings and one moon through the telescope. Maria was very knowledgeable about the Incan history of the stars and planets and Jose gave us an education of the stars in the...More
