Museo Santuarios Andinos has a small but well-organized collection of Inca artifacts. The best pick however would be the high-altitude display of the mummified human "Juanita". Believed to have been a victim of Inca traditions, she was preserved under snow for over 550 years. After an alleged volcanic eruption, the body was said to have been discovered buried under snow. There is also an impressive range of grave tombs and 18 other mummified remains that were discovered atop volcanic mountains. Certainly, a museum showcasing the hidden picture of the Inca civilization. Check website for more details.
