  • When you enter the only thing you care about is collect the ticket, and then leave you to abandon. If you want to get a tour they tell you that they will charge you more for that service. 50% of the display cabinets are "in maintenance". It leaves very bad image of the museums of Peru to the tourists.

  • It is closed by all means, but the door opened when I pushed it because there was a display of a small open and the indication that the buzzer was pushed. Admission AM 15pen. The preservation state of pottery and textiles is good. The commentary is only Spanish, but there is a file of the explanation translated into English to the receptionist. I think this is mummy, but I do not understand it in Spanish, so I understood the description of mummy when I saw the file of the English translation.

  • We stayed in the museum, in the company of peacocks, dogs and cats... An oasis of greenery within the city! It was a great experience, because we had the way to visit the museum, the archaeological site of Cahuachi and an aqueduct nearby, with an Italian speaking guide very well prepared and available! We had the good fortune to meet Professor Orefici before the excursions, and we were sorry not to be able to greet him before leaving! It will mean that we will return a next time to see how the excavations continue:))

  • Love it! ....I would add a short video of the Nazca culture people and the different studies about the Nazca lines
  • Easy taxi ride from plaza. 3 soles. Old-time archeologists' museum. Beautiful artifacts ordered and cataloged by location of find. Lacking age notations, none-the-less fascinating, but knowing something about the history before you go helps. Ask for a guidebook in your language at the front desk. Explains each display in great detail. $15 soles is a great deal. Highly recommended if you love artifacts. Wonderful courtyard and aqueduct. Pet the dog for me!
  • Was really good. They have a reallo good collection of pottery as well as textiles from the nazca culture more of then were found in the cahuachi as well as pueblo viejo arqueological site.
  • Best Nazca culture museum
  • Excellent archaeological material about the peoples and cultures that first inhabited the area. The aqueduct is great to see from so close too. A must-visit.
