  • This museum has been refurbished and extended recently. It contains the best existing collection around the world of textiles of all kinds of the pre-Columbian cultures of Peru, with absolutely magnificent samples. Worth the expanded, and guided tour in which teach you fabrics of different types that are not exposed by lack of site.

  • 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.
