We booked to do the planetarium due to the excellent reviews and my love of space and what an amazing choice. We were picked up from the centre of Cusco and driven out to the family run planetarium high up in the mountains. Such a beautiful tranquil place. The family were so informative and passionate about space. Outside we saw... More

We booked this on a whim and were able to get in same day! It was a quick trip but definitely worth it. You will hear a lot about Incan history- but the best part is when they take you in their planetarium and project the stars/constellations. The stories and information we heard here about the Incan relationship with the... More

We were really looking forward to this very unique experience – and it was truly something very special! The evening was very informative and after an interesting talk, we went outside and got to look through three different very powerful telescopes, aimed at the moon, the nearest star to earth visible from the Southern hemisphere and a planet with it’s...

Had this recommended and would recommend to others. You are taken by bus out of town and then three stage visit with first part on Incas and the stars, then planetarium type show and finally out side to look through telescopes. I am not a star gazer but was fascinated as were both teenage kids. But wrap up warm, blankets... More

I went here with my tour group. A pleasant evening out. A small planetarium but extremely informative. We were provided with blankets to keep us warm and whilst inside the heater was also on. Time was spent inside with a ceiling screen presentation then outside to view through the telescope.

A wonderful family run experience! You will be picked up with the rest of the evening's group close to plaza de armas and taken up above Cusco to a nice house/garden in a minivan. The rest of the evening will be spent in a small planetarium learning about new, old and Inka specific zodiacs , learning about the stars importance... More

I was travelling with some Canadian students (14-18 yrs old) during spring break and we booked a tour at the planetarium as we had some free time while in Cusco. I admit I wasn't expecting much but I was totally impressed after our tour. I'm amazed at the love, dedication and commitment the family has to share and teach others... More

I'm from the northern hemisphere so this was interesting. First time I have seen the southern cross. The guide was very enthusiastic about the planetarium.
