  • Quaint, interactive which was fun. Some interesting displays. Value for money and has a clean toilet
  • 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.
  • Really interesting museum!
  • 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.
