  • Great that the traditions of weaving and dying the wool is passed on. It was interesting to see the various plants used that produced such vibrant dyes.  more »

  • Excellent little museum/gallery explaining different types of weaving and the significance for different Peruvian communities. Part of a nice store with demonstrations and beautiful products for sale - would benefit from a few more kid-suitable options.
  • You can watch the artists weaving. The museum is well done and overall the standard is excellent. You can buy beautiful handmade items in the store.
  • Features truly amazing textile pieces made in a traditional style. The craftsmanship is amazing. Prices are very high compared to other markets but the quality was easily the best I saw anywhere in Peru. If you want a one of a kind piece and would like to help support the communities that produce these amazing pieces - this is the place to do it.
  • It's a small, but great museum documenting the traditional Peruvian textiles. Very quiet, usually without any people so you can take to see the museum. Admission is free and also has a very clean bathrooms. There is also a shop that sells hand-made textile goods - high quality but also expensive. It's worth a visit when you are in Cusco.
  • Very interesting place. I highly recommend.
