Very good and interesting museum if you want to know more about indigenous life, culture, history and art. They give you a book with extensive explanation in English corresponding with all you will see. That includes incredible fine and minuscule weaving patterns. In the book you wil not only find explanation on the meaning of the patterns but also about how mothers teach their daughters how to make this complicated work etc. On entrance the lady told me 45 minutes would be enough to see the museum. But they have (I think) 9 rooms, very interesting video's with music, dance and also explanation. So if you are really interested take about 3 hours to see this museum. Also the garden is lovely with beautiful views.

Comprehensive, interesting and with plenty of information, this was the best museum we visited in Bolivia. And the textiles are stunning and good quality examples are on sale at the shop.

It's a pity you can't take photos to remember all the beautiful textile shown. They offer you a mate drink as a welcome drink.

Take your time and learn something

This museum was fabulous. This was the first time I have had all the indigenous art fully explained to me. Upon arrival you are given a large booklet with long explanations of everything in the museum corresponding to numbers on the walls and display cases. It’s takes a while to read through all the text but it is definitely worth it as it is a great way to learn about the art and culture of the different indigenous groups in the Région.

Highly reccomend this museum!

A must see for culture lovers

A bit hard to find, you have to climb up a steep hill which can get slippery when it rains so wear good shoes. Have your hotel give you a city map so you can find it. They do not allow photography inside. Signage is mostly in spanish. I spend a good 90 minutes in there. There is an excellent gift shop where you are allowed to take pictures.

Excellent Place. Really a Must See in Sucre
Jan. 2019 • Couples
Gives you a chance to see the absolutely superb weaving done by local women and to buy some of the results. When we were there, we watched fixated as a woman was weaving a very complicated pattern into what appeared to be a poncho (or an aguayo). Next to her was her daughter, who because she was off from school for summer vacation, was learning weaving skills from her mother. Naturally, we couldn't help buying gifts for everyone in our family from the store on premises. Each of the items carried an identification of the materials it was made from, the pueblo it came from (and if memory serves me accurately), also the woman who wove it. If you're in Sucre, don't miss going here.

A must see!

This is such a wonderful museum. The work is professionally displayed and incredibly interesting. The museum has wonderful labels and discription on each piece. They can provide a book of English descriptions if needed. The weavings of Sucre are truly beautiful and something to be admired. Sadly, the museum does not allow any photos. I was blown away by the details in each weaving, you need to visit this museum.
