What people are saying:

This place is no longer a church, but a gallery/museum containing religious artifacts. The building is not big, but the building is very warm. You can walk around and read the description on the wall for yourself. Most of them are in Spanish, some in English. After walking through this place, I realized that small can be beautiful. Some countries like to build large monuments and memorials. But from a historical perspective, they look sad and ugly.

    A Good Museum to Visit to Complement Your Knowledge of Bolivia / Sucre - But Under Construction

    This museum is a classic Bolivian museum in the sense that the presentations are not very creative and the descriptions not very in-depth. It's key that you get a guide to show you around. On the firs...

    Modern art section tame

    I was hoping to find a museum with some contemporary passion for the Bolivian socialist revolution. Although there are a few interesting pieces, for the most part they play it too safe, and avoid the ...

    A bit short on descriptions

    I think that the museum has opted for quantity rather than quality. Large glass cabinets line a couple of the rooms and these are full of ceramics, a little difficult to see because of the reflections...
