This small museum has 8 rooms explaining indigenous art, dance, and traditions. You will see lovely examples of different types of weavings, with explanations of the patterns and origins. A tough activity for a toddler, which we knew going in, but still worth the visit....More

This museum located in the upper part of the city displays various examples of the weaving works done by various indigenous peoples (jalq'a etc..). It can be visited in an hour or so and there are films on traditional dances. Very interesting.

Enjoyed seeing different tapestries made through the years, but would have enjoyed seeing the woman at the entrance actually weaving and not just sort of sitting in front of her unfinished product. There were some really beautiful individual pieces on display.

There is much involved here, and you should take time to absorb the subtleties. You don't need to be a fabric afficionado to accept the culture involved.

Not let the exterior fool you; from the outside, it looks like a small museum that can be covered in less than an hour. When paying your entrance fee, you can get a booklet in English to self-tour. Even after we paid our entrance, I...More

A visit to Sucre would not be complete without a visit to the Recoleta, a high "mirador" overlooking the entire city and to ASUR, the Museum of Indigenous Art off the Recoleta square. The museum has a wonderful collection of textiles by the region's indigenous...More
