This museum features a few vignettes of quecha life. It is really just a front for a shop at the end of the tour

Small, modern museum highlighting Andean history and culture. Wonderful, succinct exhibit. Erika was our guide - she knew her history and proudly and comprehensively explained the displays. The museum is not far from the main square. Highly recommend.

Very nice small museum (free) with good and brief explanation whenever you want. Rodrigo is very modest and kind to explain whatever you ask for. Museum is private and ends in a shop. Without forcing clients to buy. There's also a small cafeteria.
