Small museum focusing on the historical importance of Coca in indigenous society in the andes. Also looks at its use in modern times as a flavoring for sodas, and narcotics. An interesting look at this controversial plant

First to Review

There is some interesting information here, and I think it is worth a spot in if you are walking by anyways, but otherwise it is poorly maintained and does not offer too much.

Situado en una calle sin salida, se encuentra este museo que homenajea al producto más utilizado en los Andes: la coca. Es un lugar con pequeñas instalaciones, muy modesto. En el interior podemos conocer la importancia de la hoja de coca en la preparación de los medicamentos, su uso en el día a día, y la explicación de cómo ayuda al cuerpo en la altitud. Es un lugar interesante si tienes la curiosidad de aprender y conocer más sobre la hoja de coca.
