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!

loved the personal touch. We were in a large group but they made sure that we all had opportunities to use each telescope and ask any questions. It's a small planetarium but a lovely excursion.

Great family business. Learnt a lot about the southern hemisphere and the inka history. Everybody was enthusiastic and really liked to teach us something. Even got a pickup from the city

We had a fantastic time - even though it was a cloudy night. The family are wonderfully accommodating and really informative.

I have so many things to say about this planetarium, that I don't know where to start... Let me begin saying that I am a professional astronomer and I totally recommend the visit if you, too, can value the work of a man and a family that have no support at all from the government to pursue their research and...

Nice, funny presentation about the Inka's science, how they observed the stars and the seasons through structures. They predict what and when to plant, that made them so strong. After this, we have presentation of the southern star maps, and went out to see them in real. 50S pick up / drop off is very nice price for this.

We heard about the Planetarium on a whim and decided to try it out on a free night in Cusco. We were incredibly impressed with the experience and the amount that we learned about Incan history. Would recommend to anyone.

Ana Maria and her family were extremely accommodating, providing myself and several study abroad students with a wonderful experience on a Sunday evening (when they are typically closed). Everyone was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. If you are looking to do something that is outside the typical "tourist" activities, make sure to include this experience during your stay. Highly recommended!

This little planetarium is well put together and driven by the passion of an entire family. A self made dome, a presentation hall and a series of telescopes to see the sky for yourself. If you're into space, or this is your first time in the southern hemisphere, go here. NOTE: You have to make a reservation, something that I... More

I went here because I wanted to learn more about constellations in the Southern Hemisphere. When the evening started I was worried that the planetarium was not going to impress me but it really did. This family-run business is small, but they have impressive telescopes and a star dome. Before the clouds rolled in we were able to see the... More

We loved every minute of our trip to the planetarium! We had a clear night and so were able to see tons of stars through the telescope. The presentations inside the planetarium were so informative and fun! Thank you so much for a magical night under the stars of the Southern Sky!
