This little museum in the pretty town of Andahuaylillas is well worth the visit. The owner has brought together some interesting artifacts including meteor stones, gems, some skulls and a skeleton which has been proved to have non human DNA. The elongated skulls are a...More

This was just outside the cathedral to walk through. Basically its a collection of local oddities that would appear to play into local legends of aliens. Left for you to be the judge, its a quick walk around in a courtyard of some skeletons and...More

You'll see a couple of suspicious "alien" skeletons, nothing much. Not a very good looking or big museum either, feel free to miss this, unless it's free and they give you the time.

This museum is entirely outdoors, consisting of several small, simple pavilions, each with an open stone tomb containing one to three mummies. There are also a few artifacts such as pottery, and some original fabrics. The museum is small, but there is some walking involved...More
