This is my favorite museum in Asunción. It’s always worth a visit for both its permanent collection or for a temporary exhibition.

The museum is tucked away in a residential area, and doesn't look like much from the outside. But inside is a fantastic array of well displayed art and historical artifacts. This is a fascinating museum with stimulating artworks and interesting insights into historical Paraguayan and...More

We think this is the culture museum to visit in Paraguay and it is free! However, the explanation, of the objects on display are not sufficient to understand the history. The more you know before you go the more you will get out your visitt....More

Privately funded for the construction this is clearly the most extensive collection of art, design, and cultural artifacts in the country. We were delighted to find ceramics made by a local artist we had visited and seen her at work.
