The Anthropology Museum of Sucre, Bolivia (known in Spanish as the Museo Antropológico) houses hundreds of pieces and artifacts dating from 1200 B.C. to the 15th Century. Here you can see what life was like in the area now known as Chuquisaca several thousand years before the Spanish arrived and how life has changed and was influenced by them once they did.

The Anthropology Museum is one of three housed in the same colonial building. The other two are the Charcas Colonial Museum and the Modern Art Museum. You'll find ancient clay pots, clothing and textiles, rock paintings, mummies, artwork and handcrafts, hunting and cooking implements, and much more. Whether you begin at the Anthropology Museum or the Charchas Colonial Museum, the tour runs fluidly from one to the next, occupying an enormous amount of space (about 10 great halls).

The museum is open Monday to Friday from 8:30 - 12:00 and from 2:30 to 6:00 and Saturdays from 9:00 to 12:00 and 3:00 to 6:00. The cost is Bs. 20 per adult if you are a foreigner, Bs. 10 per adult if you are a national, and Bs. 5 per student.
