CUSCO | Museo Histórico Regional de Cusco (“Regional Historical Museum of Cusco”) is one of the most popular museums in Cusco, and is located in the former colonial-era residence of Inca/Spanish chronicler and writer Garcilaso de la Vega Chimpuocllo. It’s been a museum since 1946, and chronicles the history of Cusco.

The museum’s collection is presented chronologically, starting with pre-ceramic Andean cultures through to the Early Horizon Period (Marcavalle and Chanapata), Middle Horizon (Wari), Late Intermediate (Killke and Lucre), and Late Horizon (Inca) periods. The section that deals with Túpac Amaru, the last indigenous monarch of the Neo-Inca State, is particularly extensive and interesting.

As well as Andean cultures, the museum houses an important collection of paintings of the Cusco Academy, and several colonial era artefacts. The compact museum takes around one hour to cover, and entry is covered by the boleto turístico. The boleto turístico is a pass which grants holders access to many of the most important and popular historical sites and museums in Cusco.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
