About these ratings

Boasting an eclectic assortment of Incan artifacts and a distinctive location in a beautiful 16th-century colonial mansion, the Inca Museum delights its visitors. "The Inca rooms included textiles, pottery, silver figurines, musical instruments, and even mummies. They also had some nice dioramas of daily life, [and] a model of a circular terrace (moray)," explains one VirtualTourist user. When you've finished admiring the traditional items inside, you should stroll through the museum's courtyard, where Andean women can often be found weaving authentic textiles.

You'll find the Inca Museum located about one block northeast of Plaza de Armas. The museum welcomes visitors from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the week and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturdays; the museum is closed on Sundays. Admission costs 10 PEN (roughly $3.75 USD) per person, which must be paid in Peruvian currency. To learn more, visit the museum's official website.
