Why do people visit the Machu Picchu museum

Machu Picchu Museum

People visit the Machu Picchu Museum because of its great botanical garden with Incan steps adjacent to the building. The museum's collection is small but very informative and complimentary to what you will see in the Machu Picchu Citadel. It is a great first stop for some context and history before visiting the archaeological site, especially because there are no exhibits at the main Machu Picchu Citadel.
