Museo de Instrumentos Musicales de Bolivia - Museum La Paz - Bolivia

Another museum on the picturesque colonial street of Calle Jaen, this private collection exhibits musical instruments from across Bolivia on the second floor of a colonial building. The first room has an interesting display of pre-Hispanic instruments and ceramics depicting the musical culture of the time. In the following rooms you’ll find an impressive display of harps, violins, guitars, charangos, drums, panpipes and traditional ceremonial percussion instruments made from everything from money and bells to seeds and llama hooves. The Museo de Instrumentos Musicales de Bolivia also has an exhibition of world instruments from Brazil and Mexico to Japan and Africa and miniature displays of Bolivian folkloric dance.
