Slipped by here a one of the museums on the Tourist ticket package, It is a very neat building and nice displays, smaller, but worthy of a visit, especially if it is hot or rainy!
Be sure to include the museo on your list of places to see in Cusco/Sacred Valley because all the info helps tie everything together. It was included in our 10-day Tourist Ticket.
The museum is right on the picturesque Plaza of Regocijo, right across from the Municipal Museum of Contemporary Art. Both are included in the Boleto Turistico price valid for 10 days. Plan a visit to the square for both the museums as they are both small and easy to cover in a short period. I focused on the pre-Spanish and... 更多
Included in the tourist ticket, this is a very nice museum, it would be 1 hour well spent, guidance is included and you learn a lot about Cusco, the Incas, the colonial times, a little bit about gastronomy.

It does some have Incan artifacts, but most are not dated so there is no context in history. Their map of Peru completely leaves out the non-Incan cultures in Northern Peru. The bulk of the museum is about the Spanish. After seeing the great museums around Peru, I would only go her if you have nothing else to do. Warning... 更多
This museum won't blow you away but can give you a basic understanding of the major historical events of Cusco. Prehistoric->Wari->Inca->Spanish->Current. It distinctly has a pro-Incan bend which is expected. Some decent artifacts but nothing like Larco in Lima. It really only takes a couple hours. You have to buy either a botello tourista ticket for 130 sol (gives you... 更多
