ARCHAEOLOGICAL MUSEUM

OF CUSCO


Address: Cuesta del Almirante 103. (at the corner with Ata˙d street)


Description: Previously named as Archaeological Museum, it is settled in a colonial large House built by the Spanish Admiral Francisco Alderete Maldonado at the beginning of XVII century. For this reason, it is commonly called the House of the Admiral. It is located one block far from the Main Square and belongs to the "Universidad Nacional San Antonio Abad"(Public University). The name of Inca Museum shows a thematic specialization as it tries to exhibit the history of Cusco from the Inca perspective following an order, that is, from Prehispanic times until XX century.

The collection has hundreds of "Queros" (in quechua qiru or "glass"), puy˝os (in Quechua puy˝u: pitcher or "arivalo") in all sizes. There is also an important sample of colonial painting of the Academy of Cusco among which the Inca and Curacas portraits of XVII century outstand.
