Museo Santuarios Andinos Reviews & Ratings
Our guide advised us to spend some time here and I am so happy he did. The story of the mummy is amazing and like nothing I've ever seen
Incredible museum and very interesting story about Juanita, the frozen maiden from the times of Incan sacrifices. Includes a 20 minute video in English/French/German and a guided tour explaining the discoveries of the sacrifice rituals. A bit spooky to see the preserved frozen body at the end of the tour though
Great place to see and learn about children sacrifice, 20 soles for foreigners you're not allowed in with backpacks or cell phones or any cameras for that matter.
Mattress might as well have been a cardboard box. The bar was empty yet determinedly blasted out music to the cavernous nothing until well into 10pm. Othewise - fine
Small but very efficiently presented. Very interesting history and narrator's comments.
