This is a small museum and worth the 10 Soles. It will take about 1 hour to view in detail, shorter if you skim. They are trying their best but an injection of government funding would help...

If you are looking for interesting history look no further, this museum has some of the best examples of the elongated skulls on the PLANET. Thanks to Brien Forrester, they have collected great samples from local "grave diggers" that have found preserved skulls some still have hair, red hair. If you are medically inclined you will notice the sutures are missing from the skulls or in the wrong locations indicating some strange biology. If you are in Paracas stop by and take a tour, recommended.

Very interesting to visit this small museum, some history about different cultures but it was the skulls that drew everyones attention. It was very inexpensive to visit so worth it if you have the time.

This museum is small but we spent almost two hours as we learned with fascination about the anatomical differences in the Paracas people, their approach and objectives for cranial surgery, and their influence on other Peruvian cultures and history. I'd definitely return!

This place is amazing and Fabio is very passionate about the Paracas traditions and is trying to get more research into these amazing artifacts. The strange thing was at first we coundn’t find it and the locals in the town didn’t even know about it. It’s located in the new Marina area next to SAN Austin Hotel (where we staying). If you go to Paracas, then check out this little museum dedicated to the Paracas ancient people and say hello to Fabio.
