  • I know this Museum since the year 2000, it was fine, there were several rooms or one could admire the different ways of weaving, in typical costumes, videos, typical folk outfits, really very interesting and historically. I saw him again in February 2016, all to change, it's just a campaign man who presents his very small museum personal but rather more to sell, a dealer probably... Of course, if we don't the not known before, today will find you it well... But it's a shame, this transformation. Museum Art ASUR wake up, return to time once tourists crave to know in real life, but do not fool him with it.

  • This is NOT the ASUR Museum of Indigenous Art. The institution located on San Alberto is the CETUR Community Tourism Center. Go to the Recoleta to visit the original ASUR Museum of Indigenous Art and textile museum founded in 1990 for a much better experience.
