  • Everybody is free to visit this place, the stones are beautiful but to be honest the collection is not real, it isn't ancient as the carved pictures were made in our time.

  • Very good approach by the leaders of the optical Museum, about the designs found in many rocks to 40 Km from the city of Ica-Peru. Despite the great attempt to validate the hypothesis about the origin of the stones, I think there's still a litmus test and enlightening about the same. Praise also the excellent explanation in a Spanish very clear given by the Chairman of the Museum. /Dario da Silva Júnior-Campo Grande-MS-Brazil/

  • Despite the insinuaçõess of the mysterious stones of Ica is a fraud, I noted that they seem original. Dr. Javier Darquea, who kept these relics found near Ica, deserves our consideration for preserving this mystery.
