  • It is a must-see in San Cristobal, plus it is very to hand...! The building, ex-convent of Santo Domingo, is something beautiful, very well restored, which already is something fabulous; However, the history museum, brief but interesting and textiles Center are two fabulous things, something that you should not miss: you will know the history of the region on the one hand, and you'll see samples of textiles from different regions simply spectacular; very good explanatory videos.

  • You can spend hours here if you're into textiles. I just did a quick run around.
  • Well worth a visit. The exhibits of textiles and customs in Mexico and Hispanic regions are very detailed and comprehensive. The building entrance is behind the market so might be hard to find. Rather few visitors which is nice. Building itself is lovely too with a beautiful square and old well. The guard inside is a lovely guy who does knitting in spare time for sales.
  • A beautiful collection of Mayan textiles in a nicely renovated building. I really enjoyed the museum, the videos (in Spanish) are really informative and it's fascinating to see the work and skill that goes into making the garments.
  • Amazing Mayan textiles. All the profit goes to the women that made the textiles.
  • Perfectly well explained all the history, traditions and evolution of the mayan gardments.
