This is a small place but has good displays of indigenous textiles. There is a woman weaving on site. The local guide speaks a bit of English. There is an interesting video of a festival in Tarabuco.

Concise exhibit of weavings and more from various Bolivian indigenous groups. Handwoven items for sale. Free tea and courtyard. The gift shop could not get any credit cards to process the day we visited.

It's a bit of a climb from the city center to find this small museum, but it is well laid out and English options are available as everything is presented in Spanish. Staff is friendly and the gift shop is nice.

We walked from the centre of Sucre to the Plaza Recoleta which is up hill all the way with an especially steep final climb. The museum is hidden at thee end of the mirador colonnade past some textile stalls. The lighting could be better and...More
