  • If you decide to listen to a story out of accepted and conventional history that tells you the formal archaeology, go to this Museum, which is located just in front of the plaza de armas of Ica. Worth watching closely more than 40 thousand engraved stones found in the desert which is disparaged them saying that they were forgeries and really are very artisitcas (the amount do not think that a single artist has been able to distort them).

  • We came to Ica only to see this Museum! We wrote a letter, but nobody answered us. Than we called and go. This place with some awesome energy and interesting information. Mr. Javier told a lection to us, showed stones and accepted to take photos, but not to touch. A lot of his life stories show what kind of men is he. He is a good man :) Some recommendation: before you come to Mr. Cabrera read information about he and his family. It is very useful and interesting!)
  • I could not visit for having that make reservation for the visit and did not have enough time to wait for the reserve. The person that I attended to learn about making the reservation and schedule was very rude. Was she nagged, and how badly we tried already we don't ask more information

  • That the stones are a fraud, they charge you what want them by a visit to the "Museum" as you like it at the time. It has no fixed price. A hoax.

  • 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.
