It's nice to get free entrance, but it is pretty small and has not much to offer, except for the nice giftshop were you can everything imaginable with coca.

I wish we had more time to take a class. The visit was lots of fun and included a brief history of how chocolate is made and a yummy taste testing experience.

This museum was just a few rooms on the store to entice you to the store. The store had a number of free samples and class that you could take at an extra cost. Still worth stopping at.

This museum is really run down and not very informative. Our group found multiple inaccuracies and assumptions. You could learn more valuable information by just googling the history of coca and Peru.

Someone has put a lot of thought and effort into how to make coca the topic of a museum exhibit, lauding it's qualities while integrating the legacy as the ingredient of cocaine. Ultimately, it's a successful exhibit for a reasonable ticket price.
