It may not be the biggest art museum in the world, but you are in La Paz, not Paris. What an overlooked treat this place is. I may have been the only guest in the place, which is really a shame. The building itself is full of character- but be careful on the top floor- instead of railings on the balconies, you'll find small animal sculptures! During my visit themain focus was on Inés Córdova and Gil Imaná- two contemporary artists working in many different media. If the quality of that show was typcal, this museum should be a treat whenever you go. I also liked how the artworks were arranged- instead of just nailing stuff to a wall, artworks were suspended from the ceiling, by themselves or on platforms. Whoever put this exhibition together is a very talented and imaginative curator. Take the time to look around this old building, as some areas might be semi-hidden. There may be a hall off to one side of the foyer which was in between displays during my visit. There is a small but interesting gift shop as well. I'd recommende this museum for anyone with the slightest interest in art. There is a very small admission fee.

The collection of Colonial Art was not available. A fantastic exhibition on Gil Imana and Fredy Escobar Vega. Recommended for such a small fee in a beautiful city palace.

The collections rotate. I visited in September 2019 and the works of Ines Cordova and Gil Imana were on exhibit. They work in various media and their works tell as story. One of the stories in their love story as they are a married and well known Artists. Some of the explanations of the work are in English, some are self explanatory. By the quality of this exhibit I imagine other collections are also well presented.

The museum content is all in Spanish, though you might be able to get a fair gist if you know another romantic language. They require all bags to be checked in lockers supervised by security guards. They only take Bolivianos for tickets. No photos allowed. As usual, they had the typical Spanish colonial art and a few pieces about life in colonial Bolivia. I personally find the art creepy so I'd pass on this site. There are many other tourist locations (i.e. churches) that would be time better spent.

Don't expect something big here. Its a small museum from the Colonial period. Although it was written not to take pictures we were allowed to do so. Some of the artifacts were very interesting. Had coffee also which was good.
