Skeptical at first, but easily converted to fanhood
May 2016 • Couples
I don't why I expected this to be gimmicky, perhaps because many life experiences have taught some of us not to believe the hype. But, after watching the film, and checking out the exhibits, somehow I managed to be alone in the room with la momia Juanita before the crowds came in. And I was very moved by the reality of it all. Simply sublime...

Fascinating ritual of Inkas
Jan 2016 • Friends
Good display of elements given by the inkas in these human sacrifices, the video helps better to understand, we couldnt see Juanita there was another girl but all in all worth it In Arequipa you get to see and undertand better about this side of the inkas

AKA The Museum of Juanita or Museo Santuarios Andinos or Museo Universidad Catolica de Santa Maria
Apr 2014 • Couples
Yes it comes under at least three different names, but be assured the museum is unique. A fascinating look at the short lives of three sacrificial maidens, the most famous named "Juanita" the ice-maiden. The museum offers a very interesting video on how the mummies were discovered and is short enough to prevent ennui.
Insightful and informative - what more could you ask of a museum.

Double review

Why does this museum have two reviews? One under Museo Santury & the other under its full name, Museo Santuarios Andinos?

Great guide, incredibly informative
Nov 2012 • Couples
Started with a video that was actually pretty interesting and well done. The video was created in the United States (forgot what school) so it didn't need to be translated into English - very easy to understand. Our guide spoke English very well and the tour was interesting. He shared enough information that we felt like we were learning but not so much that we were bored. I would definitely recommend it. I think the video and tour combined lasted about an hour.

Very few pieces but the discovery is worth the visit

A short movie to start, it is quite hard to understand or hear what they say, it is a pity but you can guess...then a guide will give explanations about the pieces they found with the frozen mummies, very interesting, even too short..

Interesting but guided tour is required
Jul 2012 • Couples
Interesting display of artifacts but lighting is far too subdues to really see detail in some of the smaller pieces. Guides have varying levels of foreign language skills which may make things difficult for some.
Note that address listed above is completely incorrect. It is at La Merced 110.
210 Santa Catalina will get you into an expensive restaurant and some jewellry and clothing stores
