Well worth a visit for 15BOB, considering there is precious little to do in the town. The museum was surprisingly good. Displays are well laid out and descriptions are in English and Spanish. If you are interested in clothes, give it a try.

This is a gem, when you manage to get in. Luckily for us, a local told us to knock on the door. Once inside the collection of textiles and history of ponchos is fascinating.

Small museum (20minutes), looks like it is a collection put in someones house. Lovely exhibition, english explanations everywhere. Amazing products. Actually learned a lot. Would highly recommend coming here to support this initiative!

This is a rather small museum that is a little hidden away, but it's about one block up from the Lake Titicaca coast. It has hundreds of different clothing styles and examples and has good translations into English. It's a great place to see why...More

The museum shows you the different pieces of traditional dress from various areas in Bolivia, it also tells you about what they mean and the designs. I enjoyed it :)
