Got there a little after 4 and they close promptly at 5. Was not able to see it in its entirety, but loved what I did see

It's not the biggest museum ever. Didn't took us longer then an hour. Had couple nice exhibits about Incas and pre incas tribes that used to live around Cusco. There was a big exhibit on Tupac Amaru II life and execution which I found very interesting.

Spent about an hour on a self-guided tour of this museum during my trip to Cusco. I wouldn't seek it out, but we had a free pass to it, so we thought we'd check it out. Some nice artifacts here. Definitely worth a free trip, but I probably wouldn't pay to visit.

The first floor offers helpful and well-designed exhibits on pre-Columbian artifacts. The second floor focuses more on Colonialism.

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!

Headquartered small museum inside the history of the country and the city. Missing in an English speaking guide who will help tourists.

It is a nice museum and since entry was included on our Boleto Turistico, we popped in and did not regret it. Some very good displays and artifacts. They also explain more about the 'Last Inca', Tupac Amaru II ; interesting aspect of the cruel Spanish suppression of the Indian locals.

May not have gone if it wasn't on the tourist ticket. Found the painting of the last supper funny as Jesus was eating guinea-pig in true Peruvian style. Nice collection of artefacts such as pots and impressive tiny figures made out of stone or metal.

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.
