I've done a few other similar museums already but this was still quite interesting. Well laid out in 7 different rooms, you could spend an hour here. There is no information given in English however

It is small there are six rooms. Each exhibit has artifacts from around Bolivia and Peru and it's interesting to see the differences between them. You will see hats, feathers, baskets, pots and by far my favorite is the room with all the masks.

This is a small yet very interesting collection of traditional crafts. Highly recommend a visit. It's conveniently open until 7pm.
