Museo de la Coca - Museum La Paz - Bolivia

This museum documents the history of the coca plant, largely in Bolivia, from ancient times through to the present day. The displays are mainly pictorial, with many photographs depicting activities such as coca growing and Aymara marriage. Expect to learn many fascinating facts, such as details of the former use of cocaine in medicine and the use of coca in Coca Cola. On paying your entrance, you will be given a helpful English translation handout of the museum exhibits, as everything is in Spanish. Allow up to an hour to get around the museum, and if time permits, pop up to the café afterwards for coca tea or other coca treats. As the museum is in very close proximity to both the witches market and the Iglesia San Francisco, you can combine the three comfortably in half a day.

Open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day.
