The Museo del barro is an oasis in a country that refuses to celebrate or showcase its own culture. Here you will find awesome multicultural art, including awesome indigenous ART. It’s a small but very meaningful space, with lots of learning and viewing. Highly recommend.

It's a neatly organized museum with a rich collections.

Among the many pottery artefacts are a few examples of early erotic art, which I attach photos of.

There were also paintings of interest, in particular one that creates an optical illusion of depth that is fascinating--also attached.

It's a very diverse museum, so chances are you'll find something of interest.

I lived in Asunción for 6 years and never knew this place existed. After speaking with one of the directors today during our visit, I learned that it has been around for 40 years. It was an interesting place - quite eclectic. The collection ranged from collections of old religious relics, indigenous pottery and costumes to modern pottery and art. Art was the predominant theme of the museum and I have to admit that I was not very impressed. The reason was that it was mostly modern and rather unusual art, something that simply does not appeal to me in the least. In fact a lot of it was just plain strange. Still, the place is worth a visit, especially if you go on Friday or Saturday when entry is free.

Small museum with beautiful figures and masks created by paraguayan artists. We found there also interesting artisanal pottery. Small place but with its own character and charm.

Spent a few hours here during recent trip to Asunción. This museum is not to be missed. Comprehensive collection beautifully displayed. The only disappointment was the museum shop. I expected a much nicer shop with a more helpful staff in a museum of the quality.

Museo del Barro is situated not too far from our hotel in Santisma Trinidad, and is located conveniently off Aviadores de Chaco. Entrance is free, and we were totally surprised by the collection of local artists (including urban and indigenous artwork). We were particularly impressed by some of the works of Luis Delgado.

Most of the collections are situated on the ground floor, but some interesting artwork and indigenous lore and artifacts can be found on the second floor as well. The museum is well-maintained by a small staff. Near the entrance, there is a pair of shops which sell artisan crafts made by local artists.

Two hours is more than sufficient to enjoy the various collections of arte del barro. A stop at the museum is highly recommended.

I have been a couple of times to the Museo del Barro. A modern building showing art and pottery of indigenous people.

The shop sells a lot of handmade bags and more.

The museum gets rated highly for a reason. It is spectacular. The collections are varied and comprehensive, though not overwhelming. The quality of objects is beyond compare. The gift shops have the best items for sale in the country. If you only do one thing in Asuncion, see this museum.
