The Antonini Museum was inaugurated on 7th July 1999, and today has on display over 300 ancient pieces from the Nazca Culture. The Archaeological Museum Antonini is run by the Italian Centre Studi e Richerce Archeologiche Precolombiane, which preserve and analyze the treasure heritage of the Nazca Valley, as a product of the archaeological excavations carried out by the “Nazca Project”, at the ceremonial centre of Cahuachi and other important archaeological zones at the Nazca River Basin since 1982.

We recommend also to visit this little museum, located near the desert, where the Nazca Lines were made. This was the place that housed Dra. Maria Reiche for many years, from here she used to leave every day to the desert in order to study the Nazca Lines and figures. Maria Reiche dedicated over 50 years of her life to study, protec and measure the Nazca Lines. At the little museum you will be able to see Maria's recihe pictures , including her all maerial work she used when alive. She died in 1998, and her grave lies at the museum.
