To me, the most impressive archeological collection in Bolivia. Everything from millions of years ago to the Conquista. Fossils, mammoth bones, potteries from the various periods of Bolivian history, mummies, etc. Set in an old university building with squeaky wooden floors, which ads to the charm.
