We are an Cultural interpretation center about how the Andean people understand the skies. 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!

Amazing experience run by an incredible family who love astronomy! Their casual approach to booking and picking you up at one of the squares in the centre of Cusco continues as they give you the whole tour before asking anyone for any money, it really did feel like their priority was that we enjoyed the experience and learnt all about...

A must on any trip to Cusco, gives you another perspective to the archaeological sites. It's an interesting mix with maps of the constellation coupled with Incan astrology

Family-run planetarium with small financial means by great love for astronomy and passion to share it. We found it by chance through this site and loved it. Very, very cold at night (July) so please, take a few extra jumpers and gloves and woolly hats etc. but definitely worth it. We had totally clear sky, had the good fortune to... More

We spent the most lovely time at this home made planetarium, we learnt so much and the owner and the writer of a great book is the very same scientist that will welcome to his most magnificent creation, the sighting of the abets and the stars with the understanding of the INKA cosmogony is just thrilling. Is a must to... More

My wife and I went to the planetarium upon a recommendation from our local guide and it did not disappoint. There were three steps to the tour: first a presentation on how the Incas used their knowledge of astronomy to improve their livelihood (especially in reference to agriculture); then a show in an indoor planetarium which exhibited various standard constellations...

First of all, BE ON TIME! They aren't kidding when they say they leave promptly. We nearly missed our ride, thanks to a bit of traffic. Despite still being a small facility, their enthusiasm shines through all they do. We had a great time being guided through the southern skies. Dress warmly!

It has been awhile since I visited this and I have never written a negative review, but this was very disappointing. What I thought were a few pictures in the waiting room was one of their main features. Also, there were 8 people attending the very cold night and we had to wait to get a glimpse of the telescope...

Joined this tour to see the stars from the Southern Hemisphere. It was very interesting, they had Spanish and English guides to explain abut the Incan astronomy and also show us some of the constellations like the zodiac animals. Unfortunately the sky was a bit cloudy but we did see some stars.
