Museo Inka

It is one of the most notable colonial houses in Cusco. Built in the early seventeenth century, with Inca stones, Lieutenant Corrector Francisco Aldrete Maldonado, called the Admiral East inhabited it until his death in 1643. Rebuilt by Pedro Peralta de Los Rios after the earthquake of 1650 and was again restored by the University San Antonio Abad of Cusco after the earthquake of 1950. He currently holds the coat of arms of his rebuilders, who added the attractive plateresque cover that today looks, as well as its large arcade courtyard and coffered halls.


It brings together a vast collection of keros (ceremonial vessels of carved wood), textiles, mummies, and idols in solid gold and silver, as well as weapons, tools, and Inca ceramics. Its architecture shows the lavishness of the colony, like the outer balcony whose central column is shaped like a caryatid. It belongs to the National University San Antonio Abad of Cusco and has an enviable collection of archaeological pieces of the Inca culture.
