Who we Are
Planetarium Cusco is probably the most original planetarium in the world. Located only 15 minutes away from downtown Cusco and surrounded by beautiful natural environment.
In the midst of the arqueological site of Saqsayhuaman and the ecological reserve of Llaullipata in the city of Cusco-Peru, lies the perfect scenario for a unique cosmic experience; Cusco´s Planetarium.
The visitors will be able to live a unique experience, in three different stages. We have a Interpretation Center of the Inca astronomy, here we share stories and interesting facts that help us understand why our ancestors observed the skies as they did, and understand the relationship between the universe and the very practical day to day life.
Another stage is the dome, where we will see a starry sky projection to learn the official constellations as well as the southern skies constellations, and the Incas´ constellation. All these, are accompanied by some fascinating stories. By then we are going to have basic background information to start stargazing.
To finish our visit and depending on the weather conditions, we will show you some treasures of the real skies ( stars, planets, nebulae, constellations of the southern skies) with our telescopes.
