The Museum of Andean History and Culture (MAHAC) is a long-term project of the Kuyayky Foundation to build a museum with an eco-friendly and sustainable infrastructure that will serve to collect, preserve and display objects of great historic, scientific and artistic value.
MAHAC’s mission will be to celebrate not only the past of Andean culture, but also the present. As such it intends to be a center for exhibition, research, and performance where Andeanists from around the world will be able to meet, study, learn from, and teach.
LOCATION: The future site of MAHAC is Kukally, situated in the Central Andes of Peru, west of the
city of Jauja. From its elevated location (12,000 feet), during the day it is possible
to see archeological sites such as the great pre-Inca city of Siquil-
lapucara, the Capac ñan (Inca Trail), the Tragadero lake and the
Yacu Mayo (Mantaro river). At night, Kukally is an excellent site for stargazing, feeling a true immersion between man and the cosmos.
Kukally is of easy access, through the Central Highway, by train
or through the Francisco Carle Airport.
