Last of the four Calle Jaén museums, this one does a great job depicting life in colonial La Paz. Housed in an aristocrats home, the furniture, art, household goods are all original.

Found on colourful Calle Jaen, also known as Casa de Murillo, this was originally the home of Pedro Domingo Murillo, Bolivian revolutionary leader who was later hanged by the Spanish and became a martyr fer modern day Bolivia. Now a museum on two floors, it houses treasures of the former Bolivian aristocracy. There are ornate silver artifacts, paintings, statues, colonial furniture, household wares, textiles, and assortment of glass items amongst many other things. It is an interesting collection especially if you want to envision how the aristocracy lived circa 1800s. Look out for the prominent paintings “The Execution of Murillo” and “Los Plantas Calientes”, both prominently displayed.

It was interesting to see some of the furnishings, paintings and the rooms from that period. It is a self guided tour. I had a guide with me who would translate any of the Spanish information to English

I did enjoy this museum a lot. I joined the spanish speaking tour they had but I am not sure if they also have an english tour. The our will give you an idea how people used to live in LaPaz over 150 years ago.

My husband and I really enjoy this kind of museum - artefacts housed in a Colonial House on a gorgeous street. This was the last museum of the 4 you buy a collective ticket for that we visited. We tried to enjoy it. Unfortunately, when my husband held his mobile phone up to use a Spanish translation app he was yelled at to stop taking photos. He wasn't and he tried to explain as best he could, but he kept being told off. He tried to show the security woman his app and how it was translating the text to English... kept being told off. Annoyed because we genuinely wanted to know what we were looking at, I sought out a different member of staff who spoke better English, we flat out showed them how this app could translate any sign/text and finally we were given the okay to use it. Except now we felt like we were being followed around; as though the second they weren't looking we would take photos. While I didn't entirely understand why all 4 museums don't allow photos, we respect the rules and had made it abundantly clear that we would not take photos with this mobile phone several times. In the end, we blew through the house in maybe 10-15 minutes and felt relieved that we weren't being looked at like criminals when we left. Total let down.
