This is in fact 3 sites in one: museo colonial charcas, museo antropologico and galeria arte contemporaneo. When I visited they were refurbishing the Museo Charcas. However, the entrance fee (20bs.) which gets you into all 3 sites is still a bargain. This is the first museum that I have visited in South America, and I have been to quite a few, where someone has actually thought about the presentation. The artefacts are ordered in a good chronological order with various themes (pottery, weapons, textiles, costumes, etc. rather than being thrown together in some random mish mash that doesn´t make sense and have descriptions in both Spanish and English. The art gallery is equally well ordered from colonial portraits through to modern art and contains some interesting pieces. Finally a museum worth visiting.
