Housed in the impressive former Banco Nacional building, this new museum brings together a series of fascinating displays that vividly illustrate the great diversity of Bolivia’s ethnic cultures. On the ground floor is a professionally presented display of masks with over 50 original examples, some of which you wouldn’t want to bump into in a dark alleyway. The other permanent display deals with the Uru-Chipaya culture, with reconstructions of village life and exhibitions of artifacts used in their daily life.
