When we visited only 2 exhibits. One for display of masks in the Bolivians culture and dances. Quite impressive but some lights were missing so could not see all Other was on women who died fighting right human causes. Quite interesting too

Great collection of textile art (most of it recent) with great explanations regarding the cultures behind the art and the symbolism of the representations. Also very informative section regarding the social functions of music. There are also several pre-colombian archaeological pieces that are well conserved.

Lovely displays of textiles and interesting information on indigenous rituals and traditions. The textiles are stunning and show the very detailed and time consuming art of weaving. In the tienda you can see an artisan weaving on her loom and watch just how difficult this...More
