I always visit Oaxacas Textile Museum when i am sourcing in Oaxaca, its Exhibitions are constantly changing so I never see the same Exhibition twice. Although I have been buying from Artisans all over Mexico since 1997 I always learn something new when I visit....More

Beautiful building with rotating exhibition space and hands-on activities for kids. The permanent collection is beautiful but limited.

⭐️⭐️ We have been in Oaxaca for 9 days, so we were down to the little things to see. This was free and had three exhibition rooms. It highlights the textiles from many Oaxacan regions, and the work is intricate but it’s a small collection....More

Again another small museum not to be missed. We were there last week and saw an incredible display of garments and the history of making such lovely garments. Please visit, this is again another small jewel of Oaxaca.

Strange place considering it is billed as the only such museum in Mexico. Three small temporary exhibitions (Spanish-only captions), one of those being new textile-art, and no evidence at all of the huge collection one presumes they must have behind the many closed doors, to...More

When I visited the textile museum I was really hoping to learn more about the history of textiles and the motifs used in them. I was rather disappointed but the museum was free so not a big loss...

We spent about an hour in this place. It had some very interesting textiles from the local area. It was all in Spanish, good thing I can read Spanish but I had to translate some of the descriptions to others with me

I expected to see a lot of textiles, given that this Oaxaca, Mexico. There was a couple of rooms with poor signage. It also didn’t help that the security guard at the front desk was not the least bit friendly. It’s strictly donation.

This is the one museum that we visit every time we are in Oaxaca, which is at least once a year. It has beautifully curated textile exhibits, a great store, and is in a very nicely restored building just around the corner from San Pablo.

Lovely little museum featuring several exhibits from various types of fabric. The quilts were vibrant with color and well spaced to enjoy them individually. Wish there was a brochue or such in English with more information.

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