  • I'm not an expert in textiles, but I still enjoyed the museum and found it easy to access. I recommend it highly. 
  • The ones from around the world, rather than at the Museum collected textiles of Oaxaca. Indonesian Sumba ikat weaving and Gujarat shibori, shibori in Japan, etc. Funny doesn't mean you have the top quality ones over there. Small museum, so put in the middle of the shopping street.

  • I love Mexicans!
  • Beautiful architecture and a different thematic. Free for visiting.
  • A hidden gem in the city of Oaxaca! Do not miss the brick wall in the center patio, amazing!
  • Beautiful building. High quality display. Unfortunately, only a small part of reportedly large collection is on display.
  • Excellent displays, weaving classes given, good explanatory bound guide-booklets in each room (only in Spanish). Free entry.
