Interesting unusual artifacts
Oct 2017 • Friends
This little museum in the pretty town of Andahuaylillas is well worth the visit. The owner has brought together some interesting artifacts including meteor stones, gems, some skulls and a skeleton which has been proved to have non human DNA. The elongated skulls are a few of the thousands which have been found around the world and are thought to date back 2000 years. Initially, believed to be due to 'boarding' of the skull in infancy to denote nobility, these theories may be swept aside the recent finding of a fetus with an elongated skull. The shape of the skulls mirror those of the mysterious pharaoh Akhenaten & his wife Nefertiti 1330 BCE. Were they ETs and did the later practice occur to try and emulate them?

This was just outside the cathedral to walk through. Basically its a collection of local oddities that would appear to play into local legends of aliens. Left for you to be the judge, its a quick walk around in a courtyard of some skeletons and artifacts from the locals. Interesting to look.

Interesting stop

Displays of numerous petroglyphs and other historical finds, while mostly emphasizing the rites used by ancient cultures of skull deformation, interesting in that the Flathead Indians in the western U.S.A. followed the same pattern. Like foot-binding by the Japanese, stretched lips with inserted disks in certain African tribes, etc., it makes one wonder why "deformations" have played an important role in so many cultures around the world through history.

Small and interesting museum
May 2016 • Solo
I stopped at this museum while visiting Andahuaylillas. It had some interesting exhibits on Peruvian life and had some very interesting skulls on display. This is also one of the few museums where you are allowed to take photographs. I would definitely recommend visiting this place if you are in the area.

Alien??
May 2016 • Couples
The major attraction is the "Wayqui" alien found somewhere in Peru by the owner. But is it a real alien?? It is an interesting skeleton.

Not interesting, missable.

You'll see a couple of suspicious "alien" skeletons, nothing much. Not a very good looking or big museum either, feel free to miss this, unless it's free and they give you the time.

Great !

I got there with another optional excursion .
I gave 30 sole person.
We were not interested only this objective.
For the other 70 had to pay but we believe the sole person not worth it.
The small mummy was discovered a few years ago .
After being analyzed by some Russian and Spanish researchers DNA is not human .
Place it should be in Europe a research laboratory and then publicly exposed .
Not many people know it.
I'm sure there is something human .

Un museo da vedere. Si può vedere come abitavano persone, come si vestivano e le loto abitudini.

A museum to see. You can see how people lived, how they dressed and lotus habits.

Alien skeleton. The only hybrid found in Perù. It deserves a better location.

Wayqui, Wayqui, Wayqui!! This must be alien, the dna testing couldn't identify which SPECIES the father was!! Watch the 20 minute documentary with Theo Paredes. Mnay other examples of artificial cranial deformation. The museum is free, but leaving tips it's a must, for there's a lot of work behind. Thanks Dr. Renato Davila.

Simple but interesting pre-inca museum
Jul 2015 • Family
This museum is entirely outdoors, consisting of several small, simple pavilions, each with an open stone tomb containing one to three mummies. There are also a few artifacts such as pottery, and some original fabrics. The museum is small, but there is some walking involved through the desert landscape. The museum is still under construction, with new tombs discovered and unearthed from time to time. Guides can provide information about the pre-inca culture.
