Spans the history of Cusco from the first human settlements, to the Incan empire, to Spanish colonial rule. Well worth an hour or two, especially if you're getting in free with your Boleto Turistico.

The history and items displayed are really interesting, and because it's included in the boleto turistico it's definitely worth it. The upper floor was a little bit disappointing though, at least for me, the catholic paintings and statues just didn't do it.
