Ethnographic and Folklore Museum

Reviewed By isat856

Free entrance with displays of many Retablo's= Altar Pieces. They are significant for Altoplano culture with it's mix of Catholic and indigenous religion/beliefs. It's a kind of 'primitive' art which show the conviction and love the makers put into it. There is a lot of explanation but unfortunately only in Spanish. But there is a very kind gentleman walking around looking for visitors who want to know more. He is happy to explain in very soft and clear Spanish so if you took the effort to learn some he is a great and kind help. I really liked this museum and it gave me the opportunity to understand more of Bolivian (and Peruvian etc.) culture. It would even be better if they could give English translations on paper of all their explanations. I think tourists would not mind paying a reasonable entrance fee for it.

I absolutely loved this museum! We were taken on a tour by Hebert who was amazing at explaining each of the exhibitions. The museum is sort of in the dark, with Hebert turning on the lights of just one section at a time meaning that it was full of constant surprises. I really enjoyed learning about the impact of mining on the economy and culture of Bolivia, and seeing the artefacts in the museum. The most amazing section is the crystals. You aren't allowed to take photos which is a shame but I think it is nice that everything there is a surprise to you. Good value for money, interesting stuff and a superb guide.

Museum of the Cathedral - Museo de la Catedral

Fundado por el monseñor Pierini en el año 1938, a lo largo de su historia como sede del arzobispado de la Plata, la catedral fue acumulando destacadas obras de arte, de artistas locales y extranjeros, piezas de orfebrería y ornamentos sagrados, procedentes de la Catedral y de diferentes iglesias de la arquidiócesis de Sucre; y principalmente se formó en base a la coleccion de piezas historicas de el Arzobispo Benito María Moxó. En 1945 se crea un fondo con las obras de arte de la catedral y las que fue acumulado por Mons. Víctor Arríen, posteriormente Mons. Julio García Quintanilla quien amplió la colección con piezas de diversas iglesias y parroquias de la Arquidiócesis. La visita al museo incluye la capilla de la virgen de Guadalupe y la catedral Metropolitana.

For B/30 you get to see 5 rooms of paintings, religious objects and relics. Clerical garb, crowns, etc. A tour of the cathedral and of the separate Virgin of Guadalupe chapel and the cript. With or without a guide. Really interesting. Open 9am to 12 and then 2pm until 4:30
