  • Will we make abstraction of icy reception and go inside to discover the works presented and made attention to the exterieus since the maisob you location is superb. This kind of colonial House is too rare in La Paz puisuq´on prefer to destroy them to a brand new building. Throw an eyelets to the temporary exhibitions that can even give credit to a visit. Do not miss the boutiaue, which offers beautiful gifts much more attractive and better quality than those of the calle Sagarnaga.

  • Arts
  • Small with lots of religious art
  • Nice place
  • The collection is very good. They have samples to pre-Colombian art. Visits guided/mediated are very entertaining and interesting. The same building in which it is located is fabulous! And it is constantly growing.

  • Excellent! He showed us the Museum Guide from there for free, admission is 20 bolivianos and they really are an investment. Visit the place gives you a great approach to the Bolivian culture.
