lut 2020
Really worth spending some time in this museum to get a deaper understanding about the history a culture in Bolivia. You can take pictures if you pay some extra ticket - totaly worth it. It´s located in the middle of the downtown.

Interesting Museum
wrz 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This museum has a very good exhibit of traditional accessories such as masks, hats, etc. Recommended to visit to understand a very essential part of the Bolivian culture. There is also a mini cafe in the museum which serves really nice hot chocolate.

Best museum in La Paz? Yes!
sty 2020
Loved this museum. It gives the cultural and ethnological underpinnings of native dress in Bolivia. Hats, dresses, masks. Literally thousands all over on three floors of exhibits in a restored colonial stone mansion. Everything is divided by areas of inhabitants from both Bolivia and parts of Peru. Mask collection is stunning as are the feathers of birds used in masks and head coverings and head dresses. Some are unbelievable. Kids will love this museum too. Small gift shop with interesting photo books and a coffee shop too. Closes for lunch at 12 noon.

I hate museums but this is a nice one

You have to pay extra money to take pictures in the museum. I forgot how much but it was not that high. You have lots of subjects to photograph but the lighting was bad to terrible. You cannot use flash.
If you are really into clothes- very old clothes, you will like this place.

Good Advice to Visit
lis 2018
I was told that if you only have time for one museum in La Paz, choose this one. I was not disappointed. Nominal entry fee – just great value, even if the explanations are in Spanish. An interesting thing happened when I tried to take a photograph and was told in rapid Spanish that I couldn’t. I later found out that I could, but I had to pay first. Ooops. It is a small space with rooms all seeming to concentrate on one theme or another. There is an impressive collection of traditional masks, artistic feather displays, costumes, metalwork, stone statues, carvings and historical artifacts amongst the rooms. A great museum – I was given great advice.

Fascinating
maj 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This places seems to cover a whole host of traditional art forms and practices. It includes videos in many sections demonstrating how the pieces on display are used. A little more English on the displays would be good but otherwise great!

Culturally interesting, colourful, diverse
maj 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
This museum has a mixture of art and historical artefacts. I especially liked the colourful traditional feather art and costumes. The rooms are divided in themes and there was a mask display, metals, stone etc. It is bigger than it looks from the outside. Definitely worth a visit if you have time. Most signs are only in Spanish though

kwi 2019 • Wyjazd w pojedynkę
I must have spent at least 90 minutes here. At the time of my visit they had a special exhibit on masks of Bolivia which I found very interesting. Also the exhibit showing feather work was totally fascinating. Expect most signage in spanish only.
