This is a nice museum detailing the history of the area and the country. They have some very good artifacts on display and a wonderful staff to give the tour.

Loved everything. Especially the ancient writings. Everything from pottery to tools to clothing to an ancient mug. This is a very small museum but the contents are so precious, it is a definite place to visit if you are in Cochabamba.

Fossils, mammoth bones, potteries from the various periods of Bolivian history, mummies, etc. Set in an old university building with squeaky wooden floors, which ads to the...More
