This was so amazing and educational. I learned so much about Bolivia and their culture. The work is just stunning, but the info I learned was even better. The only issue we had was in knowing when the museum was open and it did close for lunch. It is set up high over the city.

This is a really special place, a gorgeous collection curated by an anthropologist with decades of experience working with Bolivian textile weavers. It’s carefully thought through. Reading the texts accompanying each textile, you notice that the weavings are becoming more complex over the course of the century, flourishing rather than dying out, due in no small part to the assistance this initiative gives to contemporary weavers in surrounding villages. This is the best place to buy weavings in sucre - it’s an ethical project.
They are now reopen all day Monday to Saturday apart from lunchtimes, despite their website being down and info to the contrary on google search

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.

The South Andean Anthropologists program has been supporting anthropological research and ethnic development projects in Bolivia for over 30 years and the beautiful and informative museum and museum store are products of their work throughout the southern Andean region.

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.

We learned a lot and our young kids loved the premises

One of the best museums we have seen in Bolivia so far, after seven months living here

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 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.
