  • It is worth visiting it! It has a wide craft of the Paraguay exposure in different rooms and atmospheres, dominant crafts in mud. At the exit there is a shop to buy souvenirs at reasonable price

  • Very good collection of Paraguayan art. Clay, ceramics, masks, tribal dresses. Very well presented. Comfortable rooms and beautiful tour. Traditional fabrics.

  • very complete, very much material to enjoy. The permanent exhibition is incredible {ible. It is necessary to spend time, and perhaps, read something to better understand the quality of the sample.

  • 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

  • This location is wrong, as well as in D and E. The only right is B on the map. Note that all refer to that address, which is correct but who cannot be in four places in the city...
