Discover the history and archaeology of Cusco in this museum located in an old colonial house, where important archaeological findings of the region are exhibited.
This beautiful place is notable for its picturesque balconies, was the residence of José de Santiago de Concha, a notable aristocrat during the early days of the conquest. One of his descendants, Martín Pío Concha, was the last governor of Spanish Cusco in the 19th century. It currently belongs to the San Antonio Abad University of Cusco and houses the archaeological pieces found by Hiram Bingham in Machu Picchu, recently brought from the United States.
There are 360 pieces of Machu Picchu returned by Yale University, which can be appreciated by locals and tourists. They also show, in pedestals and showcases in two rooms on the second level, the ceramic, lithic, metallic and bone remains found in the excavations made in the Casa Concha and some of the goods of the Inca museum.
