Gem of a museum!

A;ways a fascinating, well curated exhibit of textiles. The building itself is quite interesting. Located not far from the Zocalo. Easy to get to.

What they have here is lovely to look at and admire, However, the exhibit is quite small and the limited scope and extent somewhat disappointing. Nonetheless, by all means go and appreciate the exquisite textile sensibilities.

This is a small collection with some Spanish samplers and a small number of Mexican huipples on display when we were there. The shop has a few interesting textiles.

This is not a very big museum, but the space is gorgeous and the exhibits are well done. Most of the exhibits were entirely in Spanish. The upstairs exhibit at the time had laminated cards in English that explained each piece. I wish the other exhibits had similar literature in English and other languages. My Spanish is very basic but... More

I love textiles and had been really looking forward to this place. Maybe my expectations were too high. We carefully organized our plans to be there for the English speaking tour and I had checked it out the day before but when we arrived, no tour, no explanation, nothing. The building is neat. There were textiles on display but the... More

Beautiful location, old and new architecture, just beautiful. Plus the textiles they have are pretty cool. Also they have a little store where you can buy some textiles and some grana cochinilla to make your own reds at home!

Although there is a great deal to do in Oaxaca this place is worth some of your time. Include it as part of a tour of the restoration of San Pablo. The day we were there we saw a compact but truly informative display of the sources of the natural dyes used in fabrics and carpets in the Oaxaca valley.... More

I found everything about this museum terrific. I learned so much about the culture and history of the region, the textile industry and how such beautiful things are created. The film about natural dyes was well worth the visit.
