Planetarium Cusco#6 in Best Things To Do in Cusco
Located next to Sacsayhuamán, the Cusco Planetarium offers travelers a unique experience in the hills surrounding the city. While it may not be much to look at (the small planetarium is housed in a plain adobe building) recent visitors give almost unanimous praise for the informative guides and idyllic setting.
The facility not only allows visitors to gaze at the stars in a small observatory, it seeks to be a cultural interpretation center for Incan astronomy and offers a personalized experience that you can rarely find at other planetariums around the world. Since the operation has limited size, you must request a spot in advance for the 2-mile shuttle ride from Plaza de Armas.
The shuttle leaves downtown Cusco at about 5:40 p.m. and returns to the city around 7:30 p.m. The schedule is also subject to change – another reason advanced reservations are a smart idea. The cost per person is 50 soles (about $15), but discounts are available for larger groups. For more information to plan your trip, consult the planetarium's website.
