Small but underrated museum. Costs 20 BOB for foreigners to enter and an extra 20 BOB to take photos. The masks gallery was the highlight but feathers section also lovely. Captions are only in Spanish. Staff are very friendly.
What a beautiful way to learn about the rich history of weaving, textiles, the significance of the clothing worn by the Indigenous peoples of Bolivia! Highly recommended.
