  • guides and brochures indicated that is open from 0800 but the reality is that it was closed when I went and without explanation. also had a number of phone that no one responded, the local people say that change management and now manages a person of buenos aires. a pity, lousy that do not put a sign saying because they do not open

  • Museo FOLKLORICO REGIONAL is a small museum, which was founded as a museum of the Northern Carnival in the year 1969 by Don Sixto Vázquez Zuleta. Located near the main square of Humahuaca was evolving, going from showing only the carnival to add all the folklore of the Quebrada de Humahuaca and Aquilatándose as Regional Folkloric museum. In it are exhibited belongings of the inhabitants of the field in the ravine, shows the musical instruments of the northwest like Sicus, Erques, boxes, the Erkencho is also played in carnival and we find it with greater presence in the zone of the Quebrada of Humahuaca. In addition to materials of normal use in the area and elaboration of local food and beverages, a collection of typical costumes used in carnival celebrations and is completed with images of traditional customs such as the burial of the carnival Humahuaqueño, the wake of Angel and offerings for All Saints. The museum is the sample of the culture Jujeña with a library of folkloric themes, a file, the photographic laboratory and a room in which audiovisuals are projected on festivals, traditional customs and typical places with the idea of completing the cultural vision of the region.
