This museum is a tad small but does have a good collection. It was worth taking an hour to go through and see the Incan artifacts.

I visited this Museum after going to Machu Picchu. It's well put together and interesting, though a lot of it was repetitive of what my guide had told me. For that it wasn't worth 20 soles.

Visit Machau Picchu first, then when you return to Cusco visit this quaint little museum. Worth 1.5 hours of your time to add to the story. It documents the discovery and has a lot of the artefacts found in the early excavations.

Takes about 1.5 hour to visit. Quite interesting to learn more about MaPi. Good supplement to the site visit.

If you haven’t studied a lot about the 1912 discovery of Machu Picchu this self guided museum is interesting. Several videos with English subtitles and also Wall signs in English explain what MP was used for and how early theories have been proven wrong. Scale...More

I was surprised it was free, the art exhibits I saw there were quite cool and very different from the ruins and historic art. It’s a great stop in at lunch or before dinner. Really enjoyable.

First off, if you are going to Machu Picchu, do yourself a favor and watch one of the many, many videos on YouTube or Google it or read a book. This museum has a couple videos running but, again, nothing any more educational than what...More
