The museum is tucked away in a residential area, and doesn't look like much from the outside. But inside is a fantastic array of well displayed art and historical artifacts. This is a fascinating museum with stimulating artworks and interesting insights into historical Paraguayan and...More

Privately funded for the construction this is clearly the most extensive collection of art, design, and cultural artifacts in the country. We were delighted to find ceramics made by a local artist we had visited and seen her at work.

Fairly new museum featuring local pottery and paintings, both collected from the indigenous tribes and modern pieces inspired by them. Not much signage, and only in Spanish. Free.
