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.

This museum is new and is continuously improving. There are terrific examples of Oaxaca textiles and exhibits about how the work is done. There is a fascinating movie about an elaborate dyeing process. If you like textiles, this is definitely worth going to. The museum store has lovely things. And they have a really good poster showing the types of... More

This is a small museum with some interesting videos about sourcing natural dyes used in textile work. There were some lovely examples of textiles throughout this museum. Very minimal and pleasing to the eye. It looks like they may give classes, but none were going on while we were touring the museum.

You must visit the Museo. The textiles, along with the visual aids and films --for example--the process of how indigo dye is made, add depth to the understanding of how these beautiful textiles are made. The architectural space enhances the entire experience!

Interesting displays and videos of things that can be difficult to engage. The quality of the indigo dyed pieces was breathtaking and the guards sensed my interest and showed where another exhibit was staged. The shop is lovely too - with beautiful pieces from the cream of local artisans. if you are a knitter or a weaver you can purchase... More
