What people are saying:

It may not be the largest art gallery in the world, but you are in La Paz, not Paris. This place is a neglected treat. It's a pity that I may be the only guest in this place. The building itself is full of character-but pay attention to the top floor-instead of the railing on the balcony, you will find small animal sculptures! During my visit, my main focus was on Inés Córdova and Gil Imaná, two contemporary artists working in many different media. If the quality of the performance is typical, then this museum should be a treat no matter where you go. I also like the way the artwork is arranged-not just nailing things to the wall, the artwork can also be hung on the ceiling alone or on the platform. Those who put this exhibition together are very talented and imaginative curators. Take some time to look around this ancient building, as some areas may be half hidden. During my visit, there may be a hall on one side of the foyer, between the exhibition halls. There is also a small and interesting gift shop. I would recommend this museum to anyone who has the slightest interest in art. Entrance fee is small

    Highly recommended

    The collection of Colonial Art was not available. A fantastic exhibition on Gil Imana and Fredy Escobar Vega. Recommended for such a small fee in a beautiful city palace.

    Fantastic Gallery

    The collections rotate. I visited in September 2019 and the works of Ines Cordova and Gil Imana were on exhibit. They work in various media and their works tell as story. One of the stories in thei...

    Spanish Only Colonial Art and History

    The museum content is all in Spanish, though you might be able to get a fair gist if you know another romantic language. They require all bags to be checked in lockers supervised by security guards. T...

    Don't expect something big here. Its a small museum from the Colonial period. Although it was written not to take pictures we were allowed to do so. Some of the artifacts were very interesting. Had...
