We heard about the Inca Museum from our tour guide on our Inca Trail hike so after we returned we decided to check it out. There are lots of artifacts, depictions of how the Incas lived, and regional history of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. There is a small entrance fee and they are not open on Sunday. If you... More

This was affordable. Don't be put-off by the first floor exhibits. Upstairs is where it is at. The Mummies are the best!

This museum was great, entry was cheap and it has a lot of information. The museum covers the archaeological and political history of the region. it concentrates on the bands and tribal societies from pre-Incan times and explains how the region slowly became unified under the Incan empire. it covers some of the anthropology, mythology and geography of the region....

Went here today after doing the inca trail; it was interesting to gain some perspective on pre incan andean civlisations after our hike. We had heard that there was an interesting mummy exhibition inside and while it was cool to see there ability to preserve the bodies it was a very small part of the museum. Understandably no photos allowed... More

Wonderful history of pre-Inca, Inca, & post-Inca times. Much of the information is on old pieces of paper that were difficult to read--should be updated with new print outs to make the experience a little easier on the eyes.

We were at the end of 4-5 days in Cusco. Had already done several tours in and about Cusco that all focused on Inka ruins. It seemed natural to see this museum. It is easily found up a street from the Plaza de Armas. They've a nice collection of Inka treasures arranged on two floors. No map of the museum... More

This was an unbelievable and overwhelming visit. My two recommendations: - Visit only if you are really interested and amused of the Inka culture, what they did and how they lived. - Take a visit guide, a tour guide. Only this way it really worth the visit. You can ask for it in the ticket booth and won't be expensive.... More

Inca Museum in the center of old Inca capital, Cusco. Museum is designed in 1970 style, with very limited number of artifacts. Expected much more from the main Inca museum in Cusco. Need an upgrade to fit the modern travelers needs. You will learn more about Inca culture at average travel site on Internet than in this museum. If you... More

This is a small but reasonably well-curated museum that nicely supplemented our hike along the Inka Trail. There are some English translations for those who don't speak Spanish. It was particularly useful in learning about the pre-Inkan cultures and how the Inka Empire developed.

Spent about an hour touring this museum during some downtime in Cusco. It is definitely worth a visit if you want more context/background to the Incas. I preferred this to the Museo Cultural. Felt it was more organized and had a better layout.
