This is a relatively small museum focused on two types of traditional weaving in Bolivia and a significant pre-columbian archeological site.
The collection is beautiful and is significantly enhanced by the detailed guide to each of the exhibits that is made available to every visitor. The guide was available in at least four languages and provide high level context for the rooms and described every single item in the museum in detail.
The shop has a wide range of weavings available for purchase and on the day I was there, a woman was in the shop weaving a textile in the Jalq'a style which was astonishing to watch. If one cannot make it up to the museum, the Inca Pallay shop in central Sucre has a large collection of high quality Jalq'a and Tarabuco weavings.
Note that the museum is not located where the Rough Guide describes it. Walk to the top of the steps on Grau (take in the view). turn right and walk up the hill to the museum which will be on the left.
