  • I love this small museum containing art précolombiana, in addition to typical Paraguayan Indian art and a typical income of the country.

  • More museums in the country please! Excellent combination of traditional art with contemporary in the same space. More than recommended. That Yes, we must improve the location.

  • Cheguei em Assunção pela primeira vez no domingo, 17/07, e um dos passeios que me programei para fazer foi a visita ao museu do barro. A primeira surpresa foi que o museu não abre aos domingos! Nem às segundas, assim, hoje, terça-feira, 19/07, consultei esta página, onde consta a informação que o museu estaria aberto. Que péssima supresa! Ao chegar no museu, o mesmo está fechado para limpeza!! Estou indo embora, decepcionada.
  • An amazing place. Recommended visit
