We visited the planetarium during our visit. It's a small family business, it's got an interesting home made stellarium that was fun to see. Although there is quite a bit of light pollution from Cusco, they still have telescopes set up to see the moon, Jupiter, Saturn etc.. It's worth a visit if you're into stargazing and aren't looking for... More

We visted Cuzco for the first time and read about the planetarium in the guidebook by Anne Prinz de Serván and Nora Teichert called "Quer durch Peru" in German. It was mentioned as an insider tipp. We contacted the planetarium via WhatsApp (even with my bad spanish, they speak great english as well!) and they answered very quickly. Pick up... More

We got lucky the night we went with a clear sky and almost full moon. The presentation was very well done helping identify the constellations and the importance of the sky to the Incas. The telescopes were available to view the a nebula, the moon and some important features.

This was amazing and we appreciated how a family ran a private planetarium so there could be one in Cusco. It was nice to learn about the history of the stars and learn about constellations important to the Inca people.

Sorry for the bad review but I had to balance out the othere reviews that were really inaccurated. The cost of the is is $50 soles each. This is a privated business with a homemade planitarium and really no observatory (they have 2 telescopes & 1 binoculars). The story telling took up most of the time and was not that... More

An amazing little adventure. They meet you in town, minibus you there and then give you a little information about the incan cosmovision and archaeoastronomy. I loved the stories of the black llama and the chakanas as well as learning about the role the stars played on Incan life. It was popularist rather than academic which meant it was of... More
