  • Amaro textile muse Rip off. S/.30 entrance fee. One floor of old bits of cloth. Took 10 mins to see it all. Very boring. Expected to learn textile weaving, dying and historical fashion, garments, dress etc. No such thing. Tattered cloth pieces in expensive cabinets and a few pots. Would throw the lot in the garbage. Don't bother. Do pucllana nearby instead for only S/.12 with a guide.
  • Cute and interesting place where you enrich much culture
