  • I really expected more of the Museum and was a disappointment. Yes, there is a large collection of parts in the section of anthropology, vessels, stones and human remains, but the signs are bad: many parts, but little useful information, saturated with terminology that doesn't say anything to someone who doesn't know. Note also neglect in the cleaning of some cabinets. The only thing I liked were two things: thumbnails in masks and folk costumes used in Bolivia, but same here parts are positioned so that the details, all together in the same site are not appreciated. The other interesting thing is to see the painting of the Cerro de Potosí (ground floor) and to listen to the explanations, either in the video that is placed or with a guide. I was fortunate to take advantage of both explanations, which much enriched my trip to Potosí (next stop on my journey through Bolivia).

  • The story contained within this museum is very valuable, I think that they should be a guide to explain everything there one finds. There are mummies, objects and clothing of ancient cultures and many things that make the visit to the Museum a delight. The Museum of contemporary art not liked very much.
