All reviews indigenous art private collection small museum knowledgeable guide south america diego curator artifacts region tanks bell century argentina enthusiastically outreach interpretation material
This museum has so many wonderful exhibits about the history of the Andes and South America. Diego was knowledgeable and personable. He spoke with high energy and enthusiasm. We really enjoyed our experience with him and at this museum!

This museum displays an interesting collection of South-American indigenous objects, like textiles, pottery and jewelry. The owner explains a lot (and speaks English), which is nice. It made me understand the South-American culture better.
Entrance fee is 100 pesos, definitely worth it!
Make this a top in Salta. This is an eclectic but really interesting collection of ethnographical pieces, old and more recent which aims to put indigenous culture in context. The guide is enthusiastic and knowledgable
