A thoughtfully laid out collection illustrating the succession of cultures that have dominated the Nazca region. There are some interesting posters to illustrate historical points and a (slightly curious) English translation is provided. There are some fascinating exhibits but the overall presentation is, sadly, a little drab.

The ride by tuk-tuk back from the museum was more interesting then the museum itself. Having visited pre-Columbian museums now in both Quito and Lima, this one ranks near the bottom. No effort has been spared in making the place boring. And the 5 Sol charge for taking photographs is the ultimate in stupidity.

We spent a really interesting morning here, having decided to visit the museum before visiting the actual archeological sites or going to see the Lines, and I'm glad we did! I was offered an information booklet in English, which was extensive. The museum displays offer context, info about the archeological excavations themselves, and some of the artefacts found there. The... More

If you have an hour to spare in Nazca, this museum provides an interesting overview of regional excavations, ceramics and a mummy. A 20 minute walk from the centre, we paid 15 soles entry fee and were the only people there. No guide offered however we were provided with a hard copy of an English translation of the wall panels...

The museum sports a nice collection of artefacts from the Nazca region all set up chronologically. Guides in English, French & German are available. For those who find a plane ride over the Nazca lines too stomach churning there is a maquette outside.

We visited this little museum on our first day in Nazca and I would really recommend doing that before you visit any of the sites around Nazca as a lot of the things which were discovered at these sights are displayed here and it was nice for us to know what our guide was talking about when he tried to...

It's nothing like, say, the Larco Museum in Lima, but it is fairly well done and has some interesting items as well as lots and lots of pottery. You can get a binder with information in English, most of which is decent, though in some places it seems like the translator was having kind of an off day, and a... More

While Nasca continues to be among the most important archaeological sites to visit in Peru, it really doesn’t have that much to offer and its poor ofer of museums are proof of this. The Museum Antonini is perhaps the best presented option in Nasca. Run by an international NGO, this small yet well selected and described collection of artifacts provides... More

The museum is pretty good, but has seen better days with many of the displays rather worn and dead bugs and cobwebs in some display cases. An effort was made to organize the museum in terms of cultural stages and excavation sites, but more thought should have gone into the presentation. The very dry presentation of excavation details got to... More
