Get a hearty dose of Peru’s history and archaeology at this excellent museum that houses textiles, ceramics, mummies and artwork. The museum was named for the woman famous for studying the mysterious Nasca Lines of Peru.

Went here as part of a tour of several sites in the area. Its a small, old looking museum with a number of interesting artefacts. Would recommend to spend a hour or two looking round and you might need a guide to explain some parts.

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.

Mari Reiche has been very important for the Nasca lines, however if you not have been there, you don't know who she is. The museum is small but nice and is a credit to Mari.

There are not too many museums and given this, museumlovers can go here. We found: poor objects, poor documentation but gives a view.

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

Oscar is a very knowledgeable man who provided a fantastic guided trip to this museum. This was not something that I paid for or arranged. Oscar simply added this as it was next to the Nazca tower. Thanks Oscar. I recommend Great Nazca Tours 100%.

This very small attraction was worth the stop. Shows her humble dwelling, a small museum and her grave site. She was such an important figure in the area I felt compelled to go and am glad I did.

The Museum is an interesting dedication to Maria Reiche, her life and her works. Very interesting and informative, even without a guide since all the information are provided in English as well as Spanish. 5 sol entry fee well spent!
