I very much enjoyed this museum which is part of the boleto turistico. It is the perfect size and had a diversity of interesting exhibits. I was especially intrigued by Garcilaso de la Vega and the pre-Incan history.

This Museum is about the early Spanish colonisation in a historical house, where you can understand some key elements of the Spanish colonisation of Cusco and the consequences that it took. Not very pleasant if you are Spanish but nevertheless interesting piece of history with...More

Not too in depth, but a great history from geological times through Spanish Colonization. Some good historical facts and an inteesting collection. It's part of your Tourist Ticket, so might as well visit if you've time.

This small museum gives one insight into the geography, architecture, history, politics of the entire area. It includes the prehistoric (with bones) to the Spanish destruction of the native Incas. There is something here for everyone and it is even a good place for children....More
