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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
