We are an Cultural interpretation center about how the Andean people understand the skies. The explanation in two rooms give us a great perspective, in dome we learn about southern sky and finally, if weather allows, we enjoy some stargazing!

The astronomer was incredibly knowledgeable and interesting. He taught us all about Peruvian constellations in addition to pointing out the Southern Cross and astrological signs. The telescopes they use are impressive. This experience is for everyone, even those who aren't night-sky-enthusiasts. The sky was so...More

We went to the Planetarium the first night we arrived in Cusco. Our entire group of 11 really liked this event. There are three parts to the evening and it ran great. They have a dome, where you are guided through the Southern night sky,...More

All of the guides were very nice and in English. They gave us blankets for the cold and we learned about the Inca constellations and explored their indoor planetarium also.

Presentation of information was fine but more powerful telescopes would increase what could be seen and detail of what was viewed which would improve the experience.

Went on June 29, 2018 on our last day in Cusco, was fantastic! Family run business. Transportation provided to outside of Cusco town center. Great explanations both when we were looking through the telescopes outside and also inside. Learned so much, definitely worth the visit!

We visited the planetarium in July 2017 and it was definitely a trip highlight. We enjoyed learning about the night sky and the Inca constellations, study of astronomy and impact on architecture. Previewing the stars in the planetarium and then moving to the night sky...More

Family run planetarium, objective information given. I felt it was worth the entry fee. They do an inside presentation and then take you outside to view the sky. They had 3 large telescopes to look thru and gave commentary on each sky view. Very nice...More

There is a drive in the van from the city Square up to the planetarium, the show in the building and the sky gazing with their very good telescopes, all total, maybe just short of two hours.
