This is a really useful introduction to Incan, and pre-Incan cultures and I would highly recommend visiting here if you plan to visit Machu Picchu. The exhibits could do with some greater explanation though, and there is an absence of English intrpretations in the rooms...More

In all it was a very thorough an interesting museum, but nothing to get too excited about. They had mainly smaller displays, nothing mindbending. I had the impression that it might have been hampered by a lack of funding, since some of the placards at...More
