  • A nice surprise: 2 exhibitions of high quality: the Japan's old kimonos and textile art of Mexico by an artist of the Huichol community. In addition, a video shows in detail the manufacturing of weaving by Japanese artisans, in the early stages of preparation of the natural fiber to finished product. There are also several videos. Passionate volunteers are trained and meet the public. The shop is of high-end textile arts: books and handicrafts are in the spotlight. Although on 2 floors, can spend however much time, or shortly according to taste.

  • A great little museum. I went for the Prayer Rugs temporary exhibition a few years ago, and it was great. They encourage you to touch and feel the fabrics. They also have a loom that you can try it, which is a lot of fun.
  • Exhibits were well presented but would be more exciting to include more exhibits as some spaces were not optimally used (empty walls).
  • A little expensive for the size, but I applaud their education and workshop efforts
  • Thought it was a bit overpriced, but we certainly enjoyed the exhibits we saw!
  • I would not recommend this museum for the average person. You have to love textiles to appreciate it.
