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.
