This museum was just a few rooms on the store to entice you to the store. The store had a number of free samples and class that you could take at an extra cost. Still worth stopping at.

The coca museum at the plaza San Blas is worth a visit, nice little museum with a store where you can buy a lot of products where they have used coca in some way.
