  • The Museum is very interesting, but very small. It pays not to go, but if you're nearby, you should take it. There is, what is it with the Nasca lines.

  • Very interesting to know the history of this math, unknown by the majority of tourists. It must be reached by taxi.

  • The Museum charges an entry of 5 soles per adult, however does not have Guide to the inside service. It is a very nostalgic journey because it has many pictures of María Reiche where you can see him in his constant work for the care of the Nazca lines. For me as iqueño which I know something about his work is more easy to interpret the images shown, but a guide is needed for the tourist who is not from the region. His work can be recognized in his drawings and tools which are very interesting. Do not leave to visit her grave at the end of the tour.

  • Impressive and surprising to see a mummy there without any special conservation.
  • Lots of room for improvement. This place feels very authentic and is a nice oasis of calm. However, if you come here to find out more about the Nazca lines, there isn't much here. The museum is a dedication to Maria (and her sister) Reiche, the German lady who investigated the lines, roamed the desert of most of her life, and discovered much of its treasure. The exhibits are not that well organized and appear quite shabby and old. The explanations are not as exciting as her story. The grounds are nice and relatively well kept. A book shop would be a great generator of revenue to my mind.
  • Historical place
  • Poor in quantity of manufacts but very interesting to who likes the mystery of Nazca.
  • This museum displays information from the studies of the lines of Nazca, the same home and the place where Maria Reiche worked. The Museum is small and unfortunately there isn't a suitable person who's explanations, or has a good Museum to preserve the material and existing legacy. As a tourist spot which is visited constantly, you should improve your infrastructure and your museology.
