This Casa of the Inca Garcilaso is included on the Tourist Ticket (see Museum of Regional History). Small overall but includes some interesting exhibits. I didn't know the history of this inca-spanish chronicler but the casa provides information ans a short movie about his life and writings.

This museum exhibits an interesting collection of archaeological objects from pre-Inca and Inca culture. It provides a well constructed illustration of the natural and archaeological history of Cusco and the Sacred Valley. It also has a collection of colonial paintings and furniture. It tells about the interesting life and writings of Inca Garcilaso de la vega.

It's a tiny little museum, good for a quick cultural outing. The first flor was very enjoyable and we could learn a lot about the prehispanic Peruvian peoples, but the second flor was just Christian sacred art, with all the white-washed saints and their pink cheeks... I was very disapointed, TBH.

At this museum you can find several items from the Inca Empire, but unfortunately you won't receive information about Garcilaso de la Vega, the owner of this house and an important cronist of the Inca Culture. I was a little disappointed about this museum, the Inka Museum is better.
