Worth going to for the room full of fantastic masks alone. Great videos on ceramics and other handicrafts. Almost everything is in Spanish.

“Best museo in Bolivia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

A little hard to find but worth the search. So much to see on 4 or more levels. Very helpful security guard who pointed out 2 areas that we nearly missed.
