This museum's small, fascinating collection includes headdresses, masks and cooking implements as well as panels describing Argentina's indigenous tribes, including the Yamanas of Tierra del Fuego, region by region. A carved wooden Japanese Buddhist altarpiece is the museum's most valuable object.

Tiny museum but incredible collection of unique costumes from Bolivia's traditional "Danza de Liwiria" with a short video showing the traditional dance performed by local villagers. On the first floor, several scenes present various items that belonged to the original inhabitants of Argentina. The objects all look relatively well conserved even the oldest ones made 4'000 years ago. The museum also hosts in its backyard the University of Filosofía y Letras. I was lucky enough to enjoy an improvised guided tour by a staff of the museum (other people seemed to be visiting on their own). Dates and notes on the objects are scarce, don't hesitate to ask for explanation. No entrance fee, on donation.
