I have seen 2 exhibits here over the last couple years and was impressed with each one. The museum is not terribly large so It's easy to see everything in a relatively short time. I love the old fibers and designs and appreciate the ability to see some very old pieces, nicely displayed. The museum is free of charge.

Very informative for people who love the textiles of Mexico, especially Oaxaca. Displays will show the regions and examples of different weaving and materials used by the indigenous people of the times.

Having been to several exhibitions here, I am always left wanting more of these kinds of days. The exhibits always offer an incredible array of the bounty of textiles, contemporary versions and excellent museological displays. The architecture is also one of the treasures of Oaxaca.

This is a very pleasant museum. Its main exhibit was of the Johnson collection mentioned in another review. There were few visitors when we were there and we could linger to examine the pieces as long as we liked. If you like handwoven textiles, you should stop in to see the very fine examples in this museum.

We were fortunate to see the Irmgard Weitlaner Johnson Exhibit - A Life Dedicated to Textiles. Another Exhibit "Tintes Naturales a Pinceladas" by Maddalena Forcella was equally as nice. The Johnson exhibit was a little more enjoyable because Johnson's field notes were in English and Spanish. http://www.museotextildeoaxaca.org.mx

We walked into this museum and were delighted by the courtyard with marigolds floating from the sky. Enjoyed the exhibits and were glad we stopped in.

This small museum has wonderful collections beautifully displayed. Makes you wish for more. Located near to the Zocalo and market area so is an easy place to visit if you wish to do both.

It's a gorgeous small museum. It presents a great mix of textile, weaving and embroidery history and contemporary fine art textile practice. Its amazing to see the museum quality works, after seeing many souvenir quality textiles all around the city.
