“Definitely worth a look”

Museo Historico Regional

Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 23, 2011

Not as popular as some of the other sites in Cusco centre, but we really enjoyed strolling through at a leisurely pace. It was full of interesting things and provided an inviting environment for visitors. Although we traveled as a couple, I think this place might have enough to keep kids interested too.

Good value and worth a look.

Living history in Cusco. Although not extensive, the museum provides a good overview of the Inca Empire before the conquest.

Actually located in the house of Garcilaso de la Vega, this museum was particularly interesting in the information it gave about the man who has provided so much information about the Inka civilisation and culture. The exhibits on food and cooking were also particularly interesting

My first stop on the Cusco city tour was Qorikancha, and Inca ruin with a Spanish cathedral built on top of it. Ernesto, my outstanding guide, used this stop to educate me on the Inca building techniques and prepare me for other sites I would see at Cusco, in the Sacred Valley, and at Machu Picchu.

This small musuem near the Church/Convent of La Merced is worth a stop. Purchase a boleto Turistico which covers several sites and museums. The collection includes some wonderful colonial religious art. The building is also interesting.
