Very interesting museum with a very nice gift shop attached. Located right on the Malecon of La Paz, in the center of everything, a few buildings down from Hotel Perla's restaurant. The museum is worth a visit.

I'm kind of a museum junkie but hadn't visited this one on previous visits and was very glad I did this time. It's very educational and well worth spending some time exploring.

After seeing the piece of the balene whale that filters its food I understood why the krill (the whale food) don't just go back out of the whale's mouth. Definitely listen in on the museum guides talk. They have lots of interesting information.
