We had the chance to visit the museum and we had a lovely guide, Diana who explained to us the history and purpose behind the structures in the museum!

Small museum, but just chat to any of the staff who are a 'goldmine' of information and very helpful, well worth stopping by. And free entry, which is becoming scarce in tourist-centric Cusco!
