Great collection of textile art (most of it recent) with great explanations regarding the cultures behind the art and the symbolism of the representations. Also very informative section regarding the social functions of music. There are also several pre-colombian archaeological pieces that are well conserved.

First, most people don't know that there are two ASUR museum, one on San Alberto/Potosi and one in Zona La Recoleta. The staff in on the San Alberto ASUR is extremely knowledgable on Bolivian history.
