Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The museum has art pieces from different periods of Peru and a lot of the collection are stunning. Most of the descriptions are quite detailed but some are repetitive and didn’t offer a lot of new information.

    In the gold room, there’s a small section of the wall where the light went out. Wish they actually fixed it.

    Also during the visit, there is some preparation for an event where workers were setting up metal framework to cover the courtyard, which closed off access to one of the first floor room and prevented people from going on the hallway on most of second floor.

    We weren't sure what to expect but given the very fair ticket prices we decided to stop by on our last day in Cusco. It ended up being a short but extremely interesting visit. Worth a stop!

    I went in here without a guide as I had free time. I wish I had a guide to help explain more about it. The architecture is superb and the crypts are something else, the smell really gives an ambience.

    I wandered here on my own as I had a tour ticket that included it. I was there when it opened and have to say the staff were very pleasant indeed. I enjoyed the visit, with plenty in explanation in English.
