Cool place to check out when your first get to Cusco they teach about both current constellations and Inca constellations as well as some history of the Incas. Family owned and they were super friendly

The total activity time was about an hour. Jose gave a short talk about Inca farming, and then we went to the auditorium room. This part was quite interesting as the room is domed, and the projecter made the whole room starlit. After that we went outside, but because it was cloudy, we couldn't see anything. After some waiting, we... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Planetarium in May 2017 and loved it. They separate the visit into three sections - first they teach you a bit about Inca history and how they used the stars for everyday life. Then, they bring you into their dome where they explain the different constellations, more of the history, and show you how... More

Great activity for first night or two in Cusco when acclimating to the altitude. Family provides educational talks inside. Dress warm, the second half is outside where the family uses lasers to point out constellations and sets up telescopes and makes sure everyone gets to see the planets, moons, stars, etc. Helped me enjoy stargazing throughout the rest of my...

This is a must see in your adventures in Cusco. Not only do you recap the familiar constellations as most of us have been taught through Greek history but you learn the Inca constellations (light and dark) and the how they were able to utilize these images and their position in the sky to predict major weather events and successful...

If you have time definitely visit the planetarium. Very nice experience with interesting information. The sky was cloudy so we could not see much but the owners tried their best to find at least some interesting stars/constellations to watch.

My grown up daughter and I visited last night. We were picked up on time in a little square behind Plaza de Armas and taken by minibus to the top of a hill overlooking Cusco. After a short and illuminating historical talk on Incan agriculture and the links to Astronomy we went into the planetarium. A wonderful display of southern... More

Planetarium Cusco is a very special place, run by family members who LOVE the stars. The presentations were very clear and interesting, and it is very dark up above the city so the stars are bright and looking through the telescopes was great!
