Explore Sucre with a private guide on a half-day walking tour of the city’s bustling plaza, University, and colonial-era architecture. The option to choose between the House of Liberty Museum and the Museo de la Recoleta—one features artifacts from Bolivia’s independence struggle, and the other is a convent filled with historic artwork—lets you customize the experience, and you’ll enjoy personal service from beginning to end.

For B/30 you get to see 5 rooms of paintings, religious objects and relics. Clerical garb, crowns, etc. A tour of the cathedral and of the separate Virgin of Guadalupe chapel and the cript. With or without a guide. Really interesting. Open 9am to 12 and then 2pm until 4:30

Should you wish to discover the treasures of the cathedral : Bibles, paintings and all the silver artworks ( silver from Potosi mines ) it is a must. Personally I was lucky enough to be accompanied by a student who worked there and who wished to explain and practice languages as well.

We arrived 20 min before they closed and instead to let us finish (like in many museums) they told us we had to leave because they were closing. Anyway the cathedral is nothing spectacular inside and is not possible to go in the tower.

Currently the museum is closed and there doesn't seem to be any indication of when it will reopen after the refurbishment. A great shame as this is rated as the top museum in Sucre by most guides.

The door was open, with nothing posted outside except their open hours. So, I wandered in. The lady who was sitting at a desk near the entrance informed me that the museum is closed- some kind of reorganizing going on- and when I asked when it would reopen, she said she didn't know. I had to press to get an explanation, and am kind of surprised that there isn't any signage outside to mark it as closed. I can't really give this place a fair rating, since I didn't actually get to see the exhibits. This is more a heads up to fellow tourists.
