This was not a part of our original plan of things to do in the Sacred Valley. We learned about this from a Canadian who lives in Ollantaytambo. She directed us to this little museum and we are glad that we listened to her. Our...More
Went here as it was a wet day, and had a fun hour! Max would be 1.5 hours. Admission is s/35, or 20 for kids.
