  • We had a great time here. It looks a little unassuming from the entrance and lobby, but it's a great 5 story museum with some very interesting pieces. We learned a lot on our tour. Give yourself about 1.5 hours if you like to read the descriptions and history of the pieces. Signs were in Spanish and English. Photos are allowed. There is an elevator and large spiral stairs.
  • Excellent museum, possibly my favorite in 13 months of backpacking Latin America.
  • What a great tour!!! Our Guide, Alejandro was the best and so knowledgeable about indigenous cultures. I hope we have time to go back.
  • Excellent museum of ethnography and display of beautiful ancient art replicas. Very recommended
  • Well managed museum full of handicrafts and cultural artifacts. It seems small, but consists of 5 floors. You start at the top, by elevator. Wheelchair accessible. Entrance only $3. After seeing the entire collection (less than 1 hour), you have the opportunity to buy some handicrafts in the store. Items on sale are specially selected, so the price may be a bit higher, but most items you won't find anywhere else. In buying artesan products, you support local businesses and the museum.
