  • This between Palpa and Nazca, if you go by car is a mandatory stop, the entrance is 5 soles, it is one stop of not more than half an hour but that gives you a glimpse into the life of Maria Reiche interesting preamble when you're on the way to see the lines.

  • I completely agree with Mario A that this shabby little museum should get more respect and funding considering how much Maria Reiche did to publicize and protect one of Peru's national treasures. Anyo...  more »
  • The Museum is simple and sparse. It deserves State support to become the place that deserves to be. What really matters is to know the life of the extraordinary human being who was Maria Reiche.

  • Small but interesting museum with a timeline of Maria Reiches life.
  • Impressive and surprising to see a mummy there without any special conservation.
  • Little Museum with only Spanish. Can't understand what I'm looking.
  • 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.
