  • This museum has about 40,000 pieces ethnographic, archaeological and paleontological, although it exposes only 1000, sorted and inventoried most from the Department of Cochabamba and other regions of Bolivia. It has a collection of leather scrolls and clay disks that are graphical representations of prayers and Catholic prayers, which were used by the Church to evangelize the Indians. Jaihuayco "man", is a piece of priceless museum and with more than 10,000 years old, has become in almost in the most important witness on the life of American men in their early stages.

  • Well downtown Museum, located at the corner of Jordan Street with Nataniel Aguirre. To spend an hour or so, without being one of the main attractions of the city. Very economic input. It combines paleontology, archeology and ethnography in different rooms, from a temporary historical perspective, centered in the Cochabamba region. To highlight the Mummies and some ceramics. Missing you something outdated, modernize the presentation and lighting and improve some explanatory posters.

Where to stay in Cochabamba

You can find dozens of inexpensive hotels and budget-friendly hostels between the main bus terminal and the city center in Cochabamba. The only drawback to staying in that area is that some of its side streets can be unsafe late at night, so choose carefully if you plan to go out after dark. Most foreign visitors choose to stay at one of the hotels near the main city square, where you can take advantage of good eating options that are relatively difficult to find elsewhere in town.
