With a neatly and informatively displayed permanent collection, Museo Inka lets you learn about the culture and civilization that rose here in the early 13th century, dominating the region until the Spanish arrival in the late 16th century. Set in a site containing ancient Incan foundations, the museum showcases a good array of artifacts, including jewelry, pottery, textiles, and mummies, as well as educational models and reconstructions. Buy handicrafts made onsite by highland Andeans employing traditional weaving and carving methods to make pieces that represent excellent souvenir ideas.

Museo Inka Reviews
The Inca museum, just off the main square in Cusco is well worth a visit. Interesting Incan artefacts. Very reasonable entrance fee (10 sol). more »

It is an old building but equally interesting, it also has artisans who stand out in the sale of reproductions, on the first floor artisan that has reproductions of artifacts that reproduce noises of birds and others quite interesting, on the second floor stands out Edward who reproduces very beautiful figures in different types of stones, it gives the time to explain the meaning of each of his reproductions that are very beautiful.
Our guide (Gabriela) was amazing, and that affects this review. She explained everything succinctly and interestingly. Without a guide, there are some sections to read, but you really don't get enough from that. I suggest the guide (it is cheap if you have a few people), and enjoy this amazing museum!
Great museum for learning about, and seeing, the many historical cultures and artifacts. The presentation and information is very well done and useful. I learned a lot about things I was always curious about. Artisans also sell crafts here of higher quality.
