We really loved our visit to the small and charming family run Planetarium. Jose was the perfect, super knowledgable host (on astrology but also Inca's in general) and the dome with the projection of the night sky and presentation on Inca astrology all very interesting. A good activity even if it's cloudy because so much of the presentation is done... More

So worth a evening in Cusco! This is a family owned business and they do an excellent job explaining the role of the stars in Incan history. Then they take you outside with a nice telescope and look at the night sky. We were able to see the moon and Saturn along with her rings.

This planetarium is modest but is very intimate and the people running it are amazing and so passionate about what they do. I had one of my favorite times in Cusco at the planetarium Cusco! It is barely advertised but worth every sole! I would go 10 times if I could but we are leaving tomorrow. You are also supporting... More

I emailed Ana Maria if there were any last minute open spots for a tour on the same day. Ana Maria was very responsive, and luckily for me, there was a tour that night (they are typically not open on Sundays, but this time they happened to have a large tour participating, so I was able to come along—so if...

If you are into astronomy and the stars this is a very cool place to visit! The owner and his nephew are very passionate about their work with the sky and have very cool information to share. You have the opportunity to look into 2 different telescopes and see different stars and constellations for yourself! Part of the tour is... More

Visited the family run planetarium before Christmas with the family and it was great - really well presented and very informative - pickup from near the chocolate museum was very handy - recommended for families - dress warm as it gets chilly after the sun goes down.

This is definitely an experience I would recommend. They have their own private transport from the center of Cusco and the tour has several parts - a presentation about Inca astronomy, a planetarium projection focusing on the Southern constellations, and observations outside if weather permits. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable and showed us a few important stars and objects... More

I don't want to give you any high hopes before your visit but I can't lie to you when I say that this was probably one of the best experiences I had in Cusco. To really appreciate this lovely evening at the Planetarium I'd recommend you to atleast visit the Qurikancha or Machu Picchu. This family business is very passionate... More

We could learn more of the universe by watching to the program on this planetarium, and with the help of the owner, possible to watch & identify some constellations, stars and the moon (that night the sky was quite clear)...it was very interesting and educating to sign for this tour.
