  • It was smaller than I thought it'd be, 3 floors. But it was very fun and nice. Don't forget to check out the gift shop. That is it's own museum as well. They have a movie projector to show off some making of movies. We didn't stay for all of them but that right there is also worth it. Be careful, you may end up going the wrong direction and going through the displays backwards. They also have an interactive section to use olden spindles and machines
  • Saw a wonderful exhibit last week at the Museum and was thrilled by the execution and creativity the staff brought. Also everyone was incredibly friendly. I am excited to return to check out other shows.
  • Nice museum, very small though. Cool exhibits for people who have appreciation for textiles, dyeing of fabric etc. would be nice if they had more exhibits in addition to the Latin American and Japanese. Good with the library map pass.
  • The museum has two exhibitions on at the moment Itchiku Kubota and Ikat prints from Latin America. The museum is small but showcases some exquisite pieces of textile once you may not see even if you were to travel to the country of origin. They are rare pieces made by artisans and weavers using traditional techniques some of which is lost to us.
  • This place is a total rip off. They practically stole my $15, while the contents the exhibition was worth a $2 ticket.
