We went inside just because it was included in the Cusco ticket Luckily it is small and easy to get out as there is nothing to see there. It's a joke

This is not a big museum. Also, your tourist ticket will cover the entrance fee. That was the reason i visited this museum. Not much to see, but you can still sense the culture of inka.

For once, I came to a sight without checking tripadvisor. We had the general ticket for access and I like MoMa and other contemporary art museums. This was...barely a museum? Disappointing and sorta confusing. It shares space with a government convention center and you sorta...More
