  • The experience of visiting the Museo del Barro is enlightening, rewarding and surprising. A platform that makes that you position worlds that coexist and converge, are mixed and dissolved between if. The popular, indigenous and urban, a few steps away.

  • Traditional crafts of the ancient inhabitants of the area. Interesting, but nothing stunning or which has not been seen elsewhere.

  • The Museum is located in a residential street, barely visible, but the visit is worth it. The Museum entrance is narrow, but your interior and surprising content. Furthermore, admission is free.

  • I arrived in Asuncion on Sunday for the first time, 17/07, and one of the rides that I have programmed me to do was the visit to the Museum of clay. The first surprise was that the Museum does not open on Sundays! Or Mondays, so, today, Tuesday, 19/07, consulted this page, where is the information that the Museum would be open. Bad surprise! Upon arriving at the Museum, it is closed for cleaning! I'm leaving, disappointed.
