We are an Cultural interpretation center about how the Andean people understand the skies. The explanation in two rooms give us a great perspective, in dome we learn about southern sky and finally, if weather allows, we enjoy some stargazing!

Really enjoyed this! It’s a tiny planetarium, family owned, so don’t expect to buy snacks or water! But I’d go again, learned about the Incan sky as well as all the constellations that are known today. Cool!

The tour was nice but definitely overpriced and too fast. We struggled to understand everything being said and we were hearded like cattle ...pace was too fast as they had a another group booked behind us.

Really interesting and informative presentations from very enthusiastic and knowledgeable people at this family-run planetarium, followed by really cool night-sky viewing outside (constellations and some cool things in the telescopes). Dress warmly!

This is a family owned affair and the whole family clearly has the astronomy bug! For 50 Soles per person, you are picked up by minibus at the Plaza Regocijo and taken to their planetarium on the edge of town. I would recommend going even...More

This was absolutely one of my favorite things we did in Cusco. It was an amazing and knowledgable experience. There were large telescopes and beautiful, friendly dogs. We were very lucky and got a very clear night, but this may not always be the case....More

There is a drive in the van from the city Square up to the planetarium, the show in the building and the sky gazing with their very good telescopes, all total, maybe just short of two hours.
