This museum, in an impressive building, holds a great amount of beautiful fabrics, ancient clothes and personal collections. It is really worth the effort to try and get tickets (restricted in number) as it is an honour to be there. The guide is passionate and...More

Great experience visiting this place. But the place is open for only a short interval of time during the day. And make sure to reserve your booking before visiting.

For lovers of great textiles, be certain to make an advanced reservation for this fantastic foundation museum, a connoisseurs collection of fabrics, tentage, needle-worked textiles, etc. containing the history of Indian textiles and fabrics within. No large groups, no photography, no cell phones, no wandering...More

The Calico Museum houses masterpieces in and on fabric. And there are other treasures too. The collection took me to special places in a spiritual context. The extraordinary fabric work entails the documentation of events, travellings, scriptures and philosophy testifies to the purity and joy...More

ツアーはすべて予約制で午前と午後にありそれぞれ見学場所が違っている。ごぜんは10:30~、午後は13:00から入場はそれぞれ15分前から 水曜と国民の祝日は休み  午前はテキスタイルが中心でそれぞれの地域や時代の物が展示されたいる。午後サラバイ財団のコレクションが中心で遺跡からの出土品など他多く含まれる。 2019年1月1日は午前午後ともガイドは同じ女性であった。案内は英語で詳しいのだあるが、さっさと行ってしまいゆっくり見ることはやや難しい。セキュリティは厳重であるが嫌な感じはしない。ツアーの最後にチャイの振る舞いがある。参加は旅行社やウェブで必ず事前に申し込むこと。各ツアー20人までである。料金は無料。 The galleries are open free of charge on all days of the week, except on Wednesdays and public holidays listed below. The guided tour starts at 10.30 AM and ends at 13.00 PM. Tour 1: Calico Museum of Textiles Tour 2:...More

The Calico Museum was one of the big draws for us. Luckily, someone told me early on that you must make reservations in advance. Apparently they only take 20 people for the morning tour and 10 people for the afternoon tour. They ask that you...More
