Museo De Yanque - Museum Colca Canyon - Peru

Museo de Yanque, located in the village’s old schoolhouse, provides an insight into the natural and human nature of the Colca Canyon. Two galleries have scale models of the colonial churches on either rim of the canyon, as well as paintings and objects from the colonial period. Other salons exhibit ceramics, textiles and other archaeological relics, and a replica of Juanita the mummy. Another space teaches the flora, fauna and modern-day customs of the people. The museum also has a souvenir shop, café and an on-site weaving workshop.
