The museum is large and has ceramics from all over Latin America and from both modern times and ancient times. Even better, it's free! Not to be missed.

This museum is a revelation. It showcases the best of Paraguayan art - from pre-Colombian through colonial to contemporary. Well curated and displayed pieces in an impressive new building. Attentive staff and a great museum shop to boot. Can't go wrong!

Worth the effort for a visit, a range from native crafts to modern art. Better than alternatives downtown.
