Museo Nacional de Arqueología information
Two blocks east of the Prado, this museum (closed for renovations at press time) holds a small but well-sorted collection of artifacts that illustrate the most interesting aspects of Tiwanaku culture – those that weren’t stolen or damaged during the colonial days, anyway. Some of the ancient stonework disappeared into Spanish construction projects, while valuable pieces found their way into European museums or were melted down for royal treasuries. Unfortunately there are no explanations in English, only Spanish.
