Part of a collection of four museums on Calle Jaén, all for one admission price. Impressive collection of gold and other precious metal from pre-Colombian times. Also copper. Worth about 30 minutes.

Of the four museums I visited, this was a favourite. It was wonderful to see how the precious metals had been used by early civilizations. The metals that have been recovered and preserved are truly amazing.

Went here as part of an organised full day tour with Transturin. Our guide explained that there were four museums in total but that this was the better one to visit so we only went here and I thought it was very well laid out and informative. It wont take you long to walk around but sometimes a large museum can be off putting when doing a whole days touring so if in the location try this one

This museum has a really great collection of metal artifacts, really that part is 5 star. I deducted 2 stars because you have to go to a different museum to buy a ticket for 4 museums to visit this one. Yes the 4 together only cost 20B, but I want interested in the other 3 and definitely didn't want to hike the rest of the way up the hill to buy tickets to other museums I didn't visit just to get in this one.

In addition to some really nice gold artifacts I saw the Magna Fuente Bowl, a large earthen ware bowl that has been compared to the Rosetta stone since it has both Aymara(?) writing and Phoenician cuniform pressed into the inside of the bowl giving strong support to extensive ancient trade routes with Titicaca and Tiwanaku. It's truly amazing!!! You can also visit three other museums for the price of one admission if you want.
