    By chance I found this incredible collection. It is very well presented in a beautiful well kept House. Excellent museum details, not just the room-specific Beschallulg and the possibility of trying. The musician de Cavour has been very creative inventions. Go - be amazed and learn!

    He was one of the first places that I met, is a small museum, but full of surprises with regard to music and to the history of this, mainly from Bolivia and native peoples, but also with material from all over the world, is economical and attractive, I saw that few people would visit him.

    A nice and very cheap experience. It won't take much more than a hour to visit this place and I think it's worth your time.

    Good collection of musical instruments from all over the world. Partial because some exhibits were donated by my family :-).

    The Museum may lie in the most colonial city street, but we're not sure to navigate by skipping the step. The entrance fee is really very low and really having a good time to discover the richness of Bolivian and international instruments. Can even be fun to try out a few instruments.
