Museo Inka, Cusco Reviews
It's okay. A bit small and simple. Fun for an hour.
It was a little smaller than I expected, but I appreciated the galleries. My recommendation is to go on some tours and hear some of the stories associated with the various locations before you visit. That way you can tie the information (and there's a lot of it) back to the tours. My favorite parts include the mummification, the models of the landmarks I didn't get to visit, the photos of Macchu Picchu at the time of discovery (i.e. pre-restoration), and the traditional outfits. Also you can find someone performing traditional weaving in the courtyard using llama or alpaca wool. Oddly a number of the explanations were missing English translations. If it was a but more consistent the experience would be even better.
So many detailed exhibits and well organized, clean and very very educational
If you are not a Spanish speaker do not waste your time here. The museum starts off with English translations, but as soon as you get to the INKA section of the INKA museum, the English translations stop.
Not a lot of in English explained, could be more interactive
