Planetarium Cusco Reviews
Fantastic experience! Our guide (Ann Marie I think) was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate about the topic. Learned about the southern sky, Incan astronomy, and got to see many stars... more »
We decided to go here to have a perspective of how the space looked from Cusco is a very nice place and not so touristy but worth seeing more »
Amazing experience. Highly recommend and worth the cost. Hosts explained history of Inka and Peruvian stars/astrology clearly and with so much passion. You could tell they love the night sky. They made a huge effort to show us stars/constellations even with some clouds and we saw many wonderful things. History explaination and dome were informative! Loved it.
This place was lots of fun. They are a family owed and operated. It was cloudy the night that we went, but during the occasional break in clouds they would stop what they were talking about and take us outside so we could see through the telescope. They very informative and very knowledge about. The Planetarium dome was amazing! It was fun to hear about all the southern hemisphere constellation and also the Inca constellations. Overall I would definitely recommend going here if you are in Cusco!
