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!

Maria Reiche was a German mathematician who studied the Nasca lines and drawings for many years. In this small museum you'll get some background information on her life and work.

We met Ms. Reiche a number of years ago when we first went to Nazca. An impressive person. Museum tells her story and the story (or a story) of the lines.

I tried to visit there on monday morning but sadly it was closed. It is kind of far away from city center. Also be aware of street dogs in nasca. they are fierce.

First of all, this and the entry for Museo Lineas de Nasca Centro Maria Reiche need to be merged as they are the same place. This was a good little museum, not hard to find and easily reached by bus (Soyuz or another big bus company will probably be better than the little vans - we tried a van first... More

the museum is the actual house where maria reich lived and worked. The you will see her old kombi as well as all her belongings, photos, hats, her bedroom and all the papers where she reproduced the Nasca lines. You also will see a mummy, a tatooed mummy, one of the few in Perú.

My wife and I enjoyed visiting this small, but very well done Museum. Its not a must see, but if you have the time it is well worth a visit.

Nice place to visit on our way to Nazca. Gives you a good indication of what this extraordinary lady went through to document and study the Nazca Lines.
