It´s sad this nice museum is closed now, the owner just gave up, he couldn´t keep it going no more. I hope some day it reopens or that another museum like this one reaches the level this one had.

I say this because despite the website saying it is open, it has actually been closed for 6 months and the tourist office could not say if or when it would open again.

February 2017 the pictures on display mediocre but previous visits, some years ago, well worth it. Mamani Mamani pictures outstanding but, on this visit, only a couple of cards of his work on sale.

Thought it was going to be a bit of a disappointment based on ground floor where the works are for sale but upstairs 2 levels have a bit of the wow factor. Best museum in la Paz imho.

This museum, in fact a relatively wild private collection, is different from any modern art museum we had seen anywhere in the world. It is more of a curiosity cabinet, but worth to see, for unterstanding Latin American Art, and for experiencing an old villa...More

Entry price 15 Bs. It is three floors, and some of the art is nice. Nothing is terribly impressive. Not great for art or history lovers unless you're looking to buy. There is a fun map room that has a lot of information about different...More

I stumbled upon this art museum by accident. But I'm glad I did! They have many different artists but I especially loved the local artists. You can easily spend 2 hours here. But can finish it a lot quicker. Also this isn't a "fancy pants"...More

Very small museeum in a restored colonial building on the main street in La Paz. Not much of great interest in terms of modern art. Ok for a short visit if you are in the area but wouldn't make a special trip.
