A small sample of the collection at the museum. It's fairly small but still worth a visit. Half the interest in visiting here is the building itself an old colonial mansion that houses the collection.
A small but fabulous museum has just opened up in Cusco, and it is worth the few hours and soles it takes to visit even though it is not on your city pass. It is the Museum of Pre-Columbian Art. You will love the pottery -- it is beautiful by any standards, not just because it is a thousand years old! The Mocachica pottery stands out the most. This gives you an excellent overview of the cultures of Peru on whom the Incas built their accomplishments. A must see!
