The explanation in two rooms give us a great perspective, in dome we learn about southern sky and finally, if weather allows, we enjoy some stargazing! « less

My sister and I made a reservation with the planetarium. We waited at the meeting point for forty minutes after the meeting time (and we were there 20 minutes early) before returning to our hotel. When we returned to the hotel we phoned to determine why the planetarium employee did not show up. She said she was there. The planetarium... More

This was one of the best things I have done in Peru! Intimate group, and the most enthusiastic guides! Learned so many interesting things, was fascinating to learn about how other cultures used and interpreted the stars. Great value. My only advice: wear LOTS of clothes, it was freezing!

Picked up in town. This was one of the best experiences of my two weeks in Peru and I am not an astronomer. The enthusiasm of the owners was wonderful. I saw Jupiter through their telescope. It was cold. A starry night which made it good but cold. They provided blankets

We thoroughly enjoyed our night under the stars. Blankets and hot tea warmed us from the inside out and the information and star gazing were out of this world! A must do whilst in Cusco!

Ana Maria is delightful! We arranged to visit the Planetarium via email with her. It's not in Cusco, but about 10 minutes outside. Conveniently, they pick you up in one of the town squares for your evening visit. Out at their cosy farmhouse/observatory, Ana Maria explained the Incan views of astronomy and the heavens, and how it influenced agriculture. Then... More

I loved this delightful planetarium tour! Astronomy has played a big role in Peru and we were informed very entertainingly and visually about the constellations and history at this lovely planetarium!

This was definitely one of the most interesting places i've been. The people are extremely enthusiastic about the stars, they are proud on the incaculture and will tell you all about it. I've learned more here than in any other museum in Cusco. It was also a really nice opportunity to see the stars and planets and the moon through... More

The astronomer who runs this family business clearly loves his work and his enthusiasm for astronomy is infectious. They opened up the small but totally adequate planetarium for our family, showed us the constellations and night sky over Cusco, gave us information about Incan constellations, and then we went outside to look through a telescope at planets, nebulas, and stars....

Very enthusiast and knowledgable staff! the professor really shared his passion. Witty family owned planetarium. A modest operation add to the charm of the place they will pick you up and bring you back to a well known plaza in the center of town. blankets and tea offered to cozy up in the (potential) cold of cusquenian nights. Loved it!

This was one of the highlights of our time in Cuzco. We had a great time together as a family and overall both kids enjoyed themselves tremendously (ten-year old was fidgety during the initial part that was lecture-based). We each got a little blanket with stars on it to help keep us warm, we saw Jupiter through the telescope (they... More
