Museo Inka, Cusco Reviews
Surprisingly large museum tucked in at the top of Cusco. Most exhibits are also explained in English but not all. Does focus on the Inka heritage rather than the Spanish conquistadors. Probably the best to visit in Cusco.
No toilet paper, soap or towels, just cold water. NIce quality exhibits w women weaving in courtyard. Be sure to look at ceilings.
Good museum. Be aware entry is S/10. The English translations stop about half way through the exhibition.
My motivation to visit this place was to learn more about the culture of the Inca‘s. However I was very disappointed for the following reasons: 1. less than 50% of the artefacts had explanations in English 2. there was almost no information about Inca People in terms of how they lived, their ceremonies, their rulers and how they spread 3. toilets in second floor were dirty and in no ones there was soap 4. No information about Machupichu except when it was discovered by a professor and no deeper information about Ollantaytambo Unless you simply love to see many dishes and sculptures from Inca Times without deeper information or want to pay extra soles for a guide (we did without guide as no one was available at 2pm when we were there) I would not recommend to visit this museum (even though entrance is cheap!).
Of course it’s not Met, but definitely the best in Cisco about Inka cultures.
