El Museo del Tesoro

The Institution

The Treasure Museum is a cultural institution dedicated to promoting and disseminating art and techniques related to the theme of metals and precious stones in Bolivia. Its purpose is to inform and educate, but above all, to evoke genuine and pleasant sensations through the discovery of Bolivia’s treasure.

The Treasure Museum is a private institution and does not receive any type of funding from the state or foreign cooperation. Its operation is sustained through the collection of entrance fees for museum visits.

Our History

The museum is the result of a passion. The idea was born in 1990 when the first version of the project was formulated by the Morales Torricos spouses. Since then, year after year, the museum has been acquiring pieces for its collections. The house for the museum was acquired in 2006, and in a process that took four years, it was restored and refurbished. In 2012, the actual installation of the museum began, in an uninterrupted work that lasted three years. Finally, the museum was inaugurated and opened to the public in September 2015.
