The museum is large and has ceramics from all over Latin America and from both modern times and ancient times. Even better, it's free! Not to be missed.

This museum is a revelation. It showcases the best of Paraguayan art - from pre-Colombian through colonial to contemporary. Well curated and displayed pieces in an impressive new building. Attentive staff and a great museum shop to boot. Can't go wrong!

Worth the effort for a visit, a range from native crafts to modern art. Better than alternatives downtown.

I spent about 45 minutes in this quite small museum. It was a few blocks from my hotel (Esplendor). I was the only person there! The pottery was well presented. As I remember, all labels were in Spanish

The museum is tucked away in a residential area, and doesn't look like much from the outside. But inside is a fantastic array of well displayed art and historical artifacts. This is a fascinating museum with stimulating artworks and interesting insights into historical Paraguayan and...More
