  • The Itaú group is very strong in Paraguay, and sponsors a lot of culture, so the General State of the attractions, even though simple, it's excellent! Worth the visit Yes, once on track, and indulge in the building, the galleries, the two shops and sign the book!

  • We think this is the culture museum to visit in Paraguay and it is free! However, the explanation, of the objects on display are not sufficient to understand the history. The more you know before you ...  more »
  • Excellent museum with many artifacts both of clay, as well as religious artifacts that represent the beautiful history of Paraguay. NOTE: the opening hours of the museums is fourth on Saturday.

  • 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
