We stopped at the Museo Textil de Oaxaca one evening on our way to el zocalo. The exhibit featured work by Laura Anderson Barbata in collaboration with the Brooklyn Jumbies. Very interesting.

This gem of a museum contains a range of beautiful garments and other textiles from local indigenous cultures. There is also a lovely display of the natural sources of dyes. A must-see.

We visited since guide books like Lonely Planet said it was worth a visit. We did not expect, though, to be blown away by the craftsmanship we saw there. The items on display speak for themselves, though there are handy guide booklets you can borrow...More

The advantage of this museum is that you can get your head around the variety and quality of textiles before buying something in the artisan market. Fabulous colours!

Worth 20-30 minutes when you need a dose of history and culture close to the Zocalo. Some extremely fine historical pieces, helps appreciate the extraordinary craftsmanship and diversity of the Oaxaca region.

A small museum with beautifully designed interior and exhibits, this is well worth the 30+ minutes necessary for exploration. There is an English language overview near the entrance, but details are all in Spanish. You can still appreciate the artistry visually without knowing all the...More

This textile museum is worth visiting (entrance is free!), but one has to make some effort to locate it, since it is hidden within an inner courtyard and is easy to miss, even with a city map in hand. We were so glad to find...More

This small museum is truly a treasure. If you are interested in traditional weavings, weaving techniques, or just art, this museum is worth a visit. There is no entrance fee and the employees were welcoming and helpful. There are looseleaf books for loan that describe...More

Free, but donations are encouraged. Nice gift shop. That's another way to support them.
