  • Interesting by the very large number of instruments and their variety. Children are not forgotten, and they can even touch some instruments.

  • It is worth to know him. Complete collections with some instruments incredible, as a bass drum made with skeleton of Thistle and scrim with leather of calls. Very well displayed, with detailed explanations.

  • 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.

  • 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 :-).
  • A perfect musical place. Museum with automatic sound and light.
