“A surprise in la Paz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012 via mobile

It's not a big museum but you would be surprise to experience the artwork in Bolivia which is comparable to some similar type in Europe. A good visit!

“Amazing and Astounding Art Collection !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2011

This incredible 3-story building, established by a local art collector and doctor, includes a truly remarkable array of Bolivian art. From the famous to the young from abstract to realist, the range of paintings and mediums is difficult to describe in words. The building itself deserves mention and clearly those who manage the museum care for it deeply, as well as for the art they display. They even loan space to local music students, who when I arrived were practicing/playing flamenco style guitar. Open 7 days a week, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. A MUST.
