  • A Museum in the South Pan-American Highway, interesting place to learn how vivio Maria Reiche, this room where dormia and his planes and his studies of the lines

  • We were with a tour and it helps you to understand a little more what are the lines and study those that did María Reiche. A site quite dispensable but curious. Input 5 Suns

  • There must more that the government can do for this site. An important place of the person who dedicated her life to discover and investigate the lines. The museums do need more and better maintenance...  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.
  • House-Museum of María Reiche, shows the place where lived and worked. The rate of income is adult s/5 and S/2.5 children not included optional guided. The place is nice but missing detail descriptions in the exhibited objects and access for people with disabilities.
