Plaza de las Nazarenas 231, cusco, PERÚ


Although the Pre-Columbian Art Museum (MAP) in Cuzco was just recently established in 2003, the building itself acts as an artistic and historic reminder of ancient civilizations that once called Peru home. In 1450 AD, it served as a formal court for the Inca Empire, and in the mid-16th century it housed the famous Spanish conqueror Alonso Diaz. While the famous building has indeed contributed to Cuzco's history, the museum is part of a modern effort to preserve the choice artworks of Peru's past.

There are 450 pieces of ancient artwork in the Pre-Columbian Art Museum, and each one has something important to say or illustrate about Peruvian society. Some of them date as far back as the mid-13th century BC. Since the museum's inception, curators Fernando of Szyszlo and Cecilia Bákula have aimed to fill its 11 showrooms with top-grade paintings and sculptures that most aptly encompass the Pre-Columbian era.

The galleries in the museum feature explanatory literature in French, English, and Spanish, so as to accommodate a wider range of visitors, as well as accurately emphasize the impact these pieces had on Peruvian history and culture. The museum is open Monday through Sunday from 9 am to 10 pm, with general admission being S/.20 and S/.10 for students.
