Museo Inka - Museum Cusco - Peru

For spectacular views of Inca artifacts head over to Museo Inka. This renovated colonial home, run by the Universidad San Antonio de Abad, is located up the street to the left and behind the Cusco Cathedral. Focused on the development of pre-Inca and Inca cultures, the museum contains an intriguing collection of jewelry, ceramics, textiles, mummies, trepanned skulls, and a number of metal pieces. Explanations are in English. Be sure to check out the collection of miniature turquoise figures, among other examples of offerings to the gods. You may also have a chance to partake in the weaving demonstrations that take place in the courtyard. This museum is famous for housing the world’s largest collection of wooden queros, which the Incas once used for drinking. A guided tour is available for a tip of $5-10. Allow 1 to 2 hours to see the whole collection.
