The Inka museum has some fascinating artifacts that really showed how the Inka's lived. They only accept Sols so bring Peruvian cash. One thing I would like to see is more Inka history even though some artifacts may not exists. Replicas or representations would be...More

I was quite disappointed with this museum, I expected more about what they got up to with of the stories of how they expanded so quickly and even how they disappeared so relatively quickly. This really shows the story of previous tribes leading up to...More

The museum has high quality artifacts and admission is reasonable but a visit is quite frustrating for a non Spanish speaker. There is little information in English and a lot of the artifacts are not displayed optimally. The highpoint was the room of the ancient...More

Nice little Museum. Loved the artifacts on display. Couldn't take any pictures but it was a nice visit. Don't need a lot of time to review. They also had weavings & such on display and for sale in a part of the building. Amazing work!...More

It’s really hard to find Inca artifacts in museums here- most museums are Spanish influenced. This museum is great because it has some really old Inca artifacts and shows a really good time line through the Inca period- from 5000BC. There’s even mummies! Great displays...More

The museum is housed in a beautiful old mansion that I wish they provided some information about somewhere. The collection is quite impressive, but displays are amateurish...sometimes looking as though they were written with a Sharpie marker, others poorly lit. Unfortunately it's still one of...More

This quiet museum provides sa nice background on the history of the Inca culture. Outside in the patio ever you'll see weavers at work. It is worth purchasing their beautiful work.

Lots of artefacts with specific names and years. A bunch of very nice dioramas and exhibits but lacking a little in arcing chronological historical information on the development of the South American people's. Some of the signs were only in Spanish so not all information...More

A good presentation of the cultural traditions native to the andewan region and the riparian valley cultures that were reaching an apogee when the conquistadores arrived. It also documents the mixed heritage and Inca aristocracy survivals into the colonial era. The role of this community...More

Affordable entrance fee, but lacking in English signage. Great to spend an hour on a rainy day perusing the artifacts and mini landscape models of various Incan ruins (including Machu Picchu). There's an old lady outside in the courtyard who is busy at work weaving...More
