To see where a lifelong obsession with the Nazca Lines can lead you, head to the former home of the German anthropologist who devoted her life to studying the mystery of the lines. There's little explanatory material among the pottery, textiles, mummies, and skeletons from the Paracas, Nazca, Wari, Chincha, and Inca cultures, so don't expect any of the area's mysteries to be solved here. It shows the environment in which Maria Reiche lived and worked, and her vast collection of tools, notes, and sketches is impressive, but if you're not particularly into her life story and the history of the lines this can probably be skipped. Reiche, who died in 1998, is buried here in a small tomb. A scale model of the lines is behind the house. Take a bus from the Ormeño terminal to the Km 416 marker to reach the museum, which is 1 km (½ mile) from town.
