The mind literally BOGGLES at how one of the major museums of a country such as Peru could have such poor presentation of the treasures it possesses. There are literally millions of people who speak both Spanish and English and yet the translations (if there...More

Old fashioned style museum, with plain display cases and artifacts. Signage in Spanish with only some often badly translated English. We were happy we came because we got to see a lot of artifacts that aren't visible at Machu Picchu and other sights. Go if...More

I went to this museum while in Cusco on recommendation by a taxi driver there. It had fairly little content for the size of the topic. It was clean and quiet and safe though. We went through the whole thing in maybe a half hour...More

I'm intrigued by mummies, and after hearing and reading about how they were preserved, I wanted to see them .... the mummies in reality were "worth a thousand words". Also enjoyed talking to the proud artisans who were painting and carving Peruvian products.
