  • History of humanity and south America through textiles. Even if they are more than hundreds years old, the precolumbian aesthetic always seems contemporary. The collection is incredible and very interesting. Thank you Mr Amano!
  • Best textile-specialized museum in Lima.
  • A must see
  • 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.
