  • For those interested the textile art, it is a forced stop. It is worth paying the price premium for the opening of cabinets. If so, it takes time for the visit.

  • The ancient Peruvians with cotton and wool of the Andean cameloids created textiles with colors and unique designs. All in perfect condition. The Museum is in a quiet street in Miraflores and is a ranked and short visit.

  • The Museum offers a modern approach to exhibition, focused entirely to the world of the textiles of pre-Columbian, under modern exhibition and conservation conditions.

  • 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.
