This museum is housed in a lovely old building. Has lots of diverse art, including a couple of Remington sculptures, and lots of paintings for sale. Admission was about $2, but it was another $3 to use a camera.

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!
