Everything you can visit in the area comes together in this insightful museum. Displays of Inca life, pottery, weaving, miniatures of all the ruins, demonstrations of crafts was all fascinating and worth the hour or so to spend.

We saw this museum with a guide we had for a day tour. If you are on your own, combine it with the Pre Columbian Museum for the afternoon. This is well worth the visit, and is very informative about the Incan Empire. It does gloss over the Spanish invading the country, but shows some Spanish artifacts at the end of the tour. There was a local weaver in the courtyard, which was fun to watch.

Good museum and worth a couple of hours to better understand the history of the Inca Empire before heading out on the trail. The displays are basic, but have a nice variety of pottery and other artifacts. The mummies are definitely worth a look.

At only S/-10 per person this is great value for money. A good place to learn about various pre inca civilizations s well as the incas.
Also check out the various crafts men around the courtyard. You can learn how to make and decorate pottery. Watching the weavers is fascinating.
Don't pass up the chance to visit this museum.

This museum offers the Yalu University collection taken back to the US by Hiram Bingham. It was recently returned to Peru and is well worth a visit.
