We were here for "Dia de las muertos" and it was spectacular place to go and visit. They had so many different things to see to celebrate such a day. The perception of death is so different for each culture but this one is profound.

The three exhibits we saw when we went were very well presented. It was pleasant to walk through and read the materials. The buildings are great too.

Really well curated exhibits, bilingual Sp/Eng. The gift shop had some fantastic textiles and not esp high priced. Lovely ladies working there, too, like women on a mission, a good one, not sales folk.

This is a beautiful building, with gorgeous textiles and great information, though the booklets are all in Spanish. A great place to spend a peaceful hour or so learning about the wonderful skills of Mexican artisans. There was a fantastic exhibition of white huipiles (blouses worn by indigenous women) when we visited, accompanied by a film. Well worth a visit.

compared to it's cousin museum in San Cristobal this place is highly improvised and does not do justice for what Oaxaca has to offer in this regard. But still a nice place for a 10 minute visit.

The Museum of Textiles is a nice place to view the different types of textiles from the region, especially women's blouses and appreciate the work that goes into them. It is a small place and a quick visit is all it takes. Next door is the San Pablo Cultural Center, where there are artisan displays, temporary exhibits, events for music... More
