Jaen Street


Charming Jaen street, located near Plaza Murrilo, is one of La Paz’s most finely preserved colonial streets, featuring brightly plastered houses dating from the 18th century.

Nestled among these colourful abodes are five of La Paz’s most important and interesting museums:

  • Museo de Metales Preciosos
  • Museo del Litoral
  • Museo Casa de Murillo
  • Museo Costumbrista Juan de Vargas
  • Museo de Instrumentos Musicales

Due to their small size and close proximity to one another, all these museums can be conveniently visited in one day. People keen on exploring the museums should note that visiting times do vary, therefore it’s advisable to check the opening hours before arrival.
