Visiting Inka Museum in Cusco: a great idea if you tired of visiting one Inca ruin after another. In Cusco this is very well possible as there are so many of them! In between ruins, we have a different idea if you want to learn more about the Inka and Pre-Inka cultures in Peru, how those people lived, and what they used for daily life?

We highly recommend a visit to the Inka Museum of Cusco, also called the Archaeological Museum of Cusco.

Located one block from the Plaza de Armas the museum is located in an old building from the early 17th century, built on old Inca foundations.

Explore the Sacred Valley of the Incas

How to get to the Sacred Valley from Cusco?

In our blog ‘Getting Around Cusco – a Local Transportation Guide” you can see your options to figure out what local forms of transportation (bus, taxi, minivan) work best for you during your stay in the imperial city of Cusco- Peru.

If you want to explore farther afield than Cusco by local transportation then Av. Grau and its surrounds is your embarkment point for routes through Chinchero to the Sacred Valley of the Incas to visit Pisac, Calca, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo and Chincheros.

The area around the Rosaspata market is where you want to go to get to Pisac.

To go south down the Cusco Southern valley in the direction of Pitumarca for the Tipon ruins, then head to Plaza Tupac Amaru.

There are three main ways to hitch a ride out of Cusco: by bus, by minivan (or combi), and by colectivo. Each of these options runs all day with vehicles taking off once their seats are filled and another empty one taking their place to wait for the next round of passengers.
