Not much to say, but it was interesting to know many facts about coca, from the local traditions to drug abuse and pharmaceutical use.
small but very funny to visit. No photo. A good explanation of the " system". Coca is usually used. But "concentrate" is prohibited. The museum show the difficult way to do and the warm-full of the process. Coca is la like tea and chewing gum, no more for Bolivian. Cocaine is other thing concentrate done by chemist outside Bolivia with... More
I was a bit disappointed by the quantity of information in this museum. There was some interesting history and information about coca and its many uses. It felt very cramped when we went and was tough to really stand and read because of people trying to make their way through. I was impressed by the number of languages available. Fun... More
The Coca museum is a small place at the end of a short alley. There is decent sinage and is not very hard to find. admission is about $2.00 us or 13 bs.

This is essentially a couple of small rooms, it's interesting, but not a "must see." My favourite parts... More
This small museum offers a lot of information on the history of coca. The descriptions on the exhibits are in Spanish, but they offer translations in various languages (English, German, and French for sure).
The facts are somewhat interesting, albeit somewhat repetitive and out of date. Guaranteed you will learn something new about coca. The presentation is what makes it a bit of a boring thing to do (you are essentially given a 17 page essay about coca which may or may not correlate to the many pictures and facts pasted on the walls)....

I've been going in and out to this museum-café for the last three-four years and i haven't seen much of an update. However, the information provided is very essential and it's all in one place. The location is perfect, the building itself is worth a treat with lots of stone being used in the construction. There are lots of information... More
