It is a wonderful place if you want to learn about textile history. Not only from Mexico, but also from other regions in the world. Its very cheap for having a guide.

A small and lovely museum dedicated to one of the many wonders of Oaxaca, the textiles. The gift shop is charming and features sophisticated products. A must see.

It's hard to find, (Calle Hidalgo, but poorly marked) but definitely worth a stop if you're interested in indigenous textiles. Don't forget to go upstairs for the real story behind Oaxaca-area textiles.

I think the concept of this place is great, but it was hard for me with my poor Spanish to appreciate it very much. All the materials are in Spanish and though I made an attempt to translate, it was too much work. Very cool building, however, and nice museum shop.

Although this is a very small museum the textiles and clothes have been displayed very well.Good lighting and the hanging of the clothes was a very interesting idea.I would have liked to have seen more,but the quality of the existing ones is very good and I was impressed by the fineness of the woven ones.Up stairs was a very unique...

If you like textiles, patterns and anything to do with garments, this is a great way to explore not only local wears of times past. You start off with textile restauration, then move on to Mexican wears and more... There is a specific exhibit that features cultural clothing from around the world as well. You can spend an hour here... More

It's a nice museum (not much in English) but if you do not have the passion far fabric and cloths it is easy to find yourself wondering aimlessly.

We expected to see information on typical cloth produced in the region, different patterns, examples of old textiles... and found that the permanent exhibit was actually modern art done in cloth and embroidery! Some lovely things, very original. The temporary exhibit was more what we had expected, actually--in this case it was about huipiles, traditional women's garments in the region,... More

My first textile museum experience and it was way over my expectations. Some really impressive work and not too big either. You can do it an hour without missing anything, therefore you never get tired/bored. Plus, a short film with music composed by my favorite band in the world Einsturzende Neubauten is what really made me love this museum!
