I don't have any particular interest in weaving, but have loved my two visits here. This year, I vow to pay better attention, so that my visits to the weaving villages will be more interesting.

Nice and cool. Interesting place to wander around on a hot day. Quite a small museum but several good exhibits. Toilets very clean.

Though on several floors, there's not a lot to see. All pieces nicely curated. A little gift shop on the premises too.

This small museum has interesting exhibits that rotate. It is free and fun to visit. If you are looking for high quality textiles, the gift shop has some (with prices to match the quality). Well worth a visit.

If I had come with a small child, I might rate it higher, especially if my child took part in a hands-on demonstration. The museum is pretty small but I did learn a couple things while in there. If you have a child, you really...More

This small museum is dedicated to the beautiful handmade textiles of Oaxaca, both historical and contemporaneous. Definitely one of my favorite places to visit (and I'm a resident). The gift shop - like any other - is very expensive. You will find some unique and...More

The museum organizes conferences and many other events on textiles that are very worth seeing. Not to be missed.

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