Unfortunately, no language but Spanish here but if you can read halfway decently, you might very well enjoy this museum. Three floors and nicely laid out. Cost is two dollars to enter and definitely worth a trip of an hour or two.

there are many good displays; the narrative is only in Spanish, but you get the drift even with a rudimentary grasp and is certainly worth it

When we went, the museum was still under construction so they allowed us in for free. All signs are in Spanish, so be prepared to practice your Spanish or to just view the exhibits without benefit of the information. The first floor has a photo exhibition of the revolutionary war years with great images of Madero, Porfirio Diaz, Zapata and... More

Wow, what a great place to visit. The archeological museum in La Paz is undergoing a renovation and it is free to get in to see the exhibits. Just amazing. The pictures from their revolution days and the various heros and characters was quite interesting. Yes, they are constructing and if you can take a torch with you, that would... More

Sorry to report that beyond a good travelling exhibit of photos from the 1910 revolution, not much is here to fill three stories. Extensive and interesting dioramas go unremarked upon. An intriguing history of 20th Century politics in the area, as well as the mining industry is mostly unexplained also (everything is in Spanish, which is great, but there just... More

1 floor with no info at all. 2nd floor under construction. 3rd sign in Spanish only. Not worth 40 pesos. Go on Sunday when it's free.

The floor between prehistory and the ranching era was under construction, so no info on the arrival of the Spanish. Also no signage on the prehistory floor, though there was a very friendly docent. Took about an hour, enjoyed the visit, and will go back when they finish their remodel.

Only 2 rooms open and lots of construction going on. Not really worth visiting if you want a "full" Museo experience but I really enjoyed the photographs.

Rambling exhibits could have better organization. Mostly Spanish explanations - not easy for English-speaking visitors to follow. Not worth visiting if you are limited on time.
