Photographs report the time of the discovery of the ruins. Many utensils found during exploration are exposed. Recommend. The visitation is free for those who bought the ticket to the Macchu Picchu National Park.
Great little museum. Leila and I walked here after Machu Picchu. It explained a lot about the site and had a lot of interesting artifacts from the site and explanations of how Incas made their buildings, agriculture, stone and metal works. Its about 20 min walk from the bus station at the bottom of the hill at Aguas Caliente. You can also ask your bus driver from Machu Picchu drop you off there. We asked ours and he said yes but then forgot. Also you can easily stop there on your way up to Machu Picchu if you are walking.
Great. Go before you visit machu picchu
