  • There are not too many museums and given this, museumlovers can go here. We found: poor objects, poor documentation but gives a view.  more »
  • Very small museum, nice pottery, but a lesser selection of what was in other museums, in my opinion was not really worth the few minutes to walk through it, go somewhere else  more »

  • 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.
  • Poor in quantity of manufacts but very interesting to who likes the mystery of Nazca.
  • They gave us a tour of what was the House of Maria Reiche. The course is rather short but with an incredible history. The State should invest more in resources and infrastructure issues that attract more local and foreign tourists. The A1 Guide gave us lots of information about the discoverer of the Nasca lines.
