Helps if you are a Maria Reiche and Nasca lines fan
Aug 2019 • Couples
If not, it’s not worth an extra detour to see her humble room, few potteries, grave and mummy. However, it seems it’s standard to include a visit when also visiting the Nasca lines and if you need a legstretcher, you might as well stop for the 15 mins it takes to walk through it. There’s not much to read so that won’t take up your time.

Tribute to Maria Reiche
Dec 2018 • Solo
This is the place where Maria Reiche lived and had an office during her zealous exploration of the Nasca lines. She and her sister also have their tombs here. There are pictures of Maria Reiche at work. Initially she had no financial support, and later she only got partial support from the Peruvian government, and relied on support from her sister and other family in Germany. I think the term nerdy applies. The museum has some Nasca pottery on display.

It is a place you must see.
Aug 2018 • Family
It is about four kilomiters from Mirrador del Torro. We took a taxi from Nazca to get there. The entrance fee is 5 soles only. You can get there interesting information about the life of Maria Reiche and her research of Nazca lines.

The witch of nasca

A simple dwelling enclosed in a walled compound. Maria Reiche did much to preserve and make the Nasca lines known to the world. Your contribution helps preserve her work.

A small tribute to a great woman
Feb 2018 • Friends
I completely agree with Mario A that this shabby little museum should get more respect and funding considering how much Maria Reiche did to publicize and protect one of Peru's national treasures. Anyone who has or is going to see the Nazca Lines should pay homage to the woman who spent her life caring for them.

The Woman who put the Nasca Lines on the Map--literally.
Feb 2018 • Couples
Maria Reiche was a German scientist who immigrated to Peru and spent the rest of her life--for a long time with the help of her sister--identifying and mapping the Nasca Lines. Her museum tells the story of her life, her work, and includes her room and the small cemetery where she and her sister are buried.

Nice small museum, worth a look
Sep 2017 • Friends
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.

Visit to museum and resting place of an important lady of the Nazca Lines
Aug 2017 • Couples
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.

Nice museum abt a not known person
May 2017 • Couples
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.
