I have to say we only went in because it was part of the tourist ticket and I'm glad we didn't pay extra for it. Its a very tiny museum of 5 small rooms with few artefacts. However I did find the last room particularity interesting about how they deformed the skulls of the nobility to show that they were... 更多
Though small, they've packed a lot of information in to this museum. Located underneath Qorikancha, the access is on Av El Sol. If you can only visit one museum, see this one.
If you just want to visit this place, it's expensive (130 solis), and definitely not worth it. Museum is small and lacklustre, little in English and the gardens are well maintained but little to see. Far better to visit the Convent next door for 15 solis, with views of the garden and much, much more to see and do.
I would not recommend this at all. You get everything and more from the Regional Museum in town. The information is basically the same just less detailed. They don't keep it up very well. Many of the displays were broken or not cleaned. They have very few artifacts. The written up explanations look alot like middle school science fair projects.... 更多
The small number of artifacts that have been excavated from the Qoricancha a displayed here, usually only with Spanish labels. In general, this museum also provides a brief introduction to Peruvian prehistory, and has a nice display of mummies, in particular. Included in the Touristico Boleto for Cusco and the Sacred Valley, the entrance stairs lead down from the park... 更多
This small museum in a basement on the grounds adjacent to Qorikancha is OK but compared to other museums it's not special. It is part of the Boleto Turistico de Cusco so if you have spare time and have bought the ticket call in and see it.
Like many people, we went because we had the Boleto Turistico from visiting other sites. Do not confuse with the ancient site (ruins) of Qorikancha which are around the corner. You will have to pay for admittance to the ruins of Qorikancha which is NOT included on the Boleto Turistico. To start off with I'm not sure if this museum... 更多
On our last day in Cusco we were trying to burn up our last Boleto Turistico attractions, and didn't expect this place would be so interesting. The explanation of the Incas belief system, the mummies and the cranial modifications were really impressive. Definitely worth a visit.
