  • We were very impressed with this museum. The guides were very knowledgeable and had access to many drawers beneath the exhibits which were just as beautiful as what was on the wall above. The collecti...  more »
  • Great Museum with splendid collections... Pity that the comments are only in English or Spanish... To my taste, a little too dark, not enough lit rooms but I understand that it should not damage the exhibits...

  • Is a small museum that pre-Inca textiles is not to be missed to anyone interested in textiles. You can ask admission fee 30 solace Guide (Japan language) is included. (I don't know is because it didn't ask for a guide)

  • 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.
  • Preferred, is a museum very tidy with some parts in a State of conservation end. It is neat, clean, an example of Museum.

  • Highly recommended. He is a small pleasant Museum with two rooms: a room where you can see ceramics from pre-Hispanic cultures that inhabited the Peru (many of them in excellent condition and really old) and a second room where fabrics, are exhibited tapestries and lace of the cultures of the 1200-1400 (very well preserved and with a few precious details) DC. The Guide Luis told us many curiosities and felt the passion that had for the Museum. It's a foundation nonprofit that does not charge entry. On departure, you can leave any voluntary donation or pass through souvenir shop. It is necessary to book the time of the visit in advance, so I recommend you call to arrange the time of your visit.
