Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very interesting little museum that can be visited in about 45 min. You will come outside with some interesting new facts of the indigenous people who used to live in the area. Nice architecture of the building.

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.

Although we had on our reserve-trip not time to see the Museum, we went there with a private guide Augusto, who told us a lot about the Paracas culture. It was very interesting!

Small but worth every moment. Do not leave Paracus without seeing these 40+ elongated skulls. Also one 'star child' skull.

This was probably the second best 'museum' i visited in Peru, although calling it a 'museum' is a little ambitious, it is a room with a collection of quite random articles from different cultures and limited information on any of them. However.....the things that they have are really interesting and if you don't have the funds, time or inclination to go to some of the bigger museums in Lima, this is a great way to see some of the famous elongated and mis-shapen skulls that Peru is known for - and they are quite macabre and not like anything i had ever seen. They also have some nice examples of day to day culture, like an example of the quipa knots, as well as art pieces. It is right next to the place you get your tickets for the Ballestas Islands, so you may as well pop in.
