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

This is a beautifully set out museum with masses of space. The exhibits are nicely hung. There is a video, in Soanish explaining the process of the dyes and lovely pictures explaining everthing. It is in the moddle of Oaxaca and like many attractions, it is free.

I love this place. It is in an creative building, that mixes the old with the new. The exhibits, are unique and always interesting. Textile arts done in very creative ways. A must see when visiting Oaxaca. Only 2 short blocks from the Zocalo.

My sister, husband and I signed up for a two day class at the Textile Museum. Registering was very easy with Lorena, who speaks excellent English and has a very warm and engaging personality. The class was very reasonable, at 100 pesos per person for the two days. Even though the class was designed to teach participants how to dye... More

If you have any interest at all in fabrics, this is the museum for you. The old and venerable tradition of Oaxaca regional weaving is well,represented here in a few, select, and beautifully mounted pieces. The building is also quite lovely and provides a good setting for the displays. The museum charges no entry fee and takes only a half... More

It had luscious textiles but I was surprised at how minimal the exhibit was given the amazing diversity of the region. I still recommend it, just not as extensive as I had expected.

If you like textiles this is a must, and not always Mexican fabric. When we visited 6 years ago the display was Japanese Kasuri weaving. And it you do not give a hoot for textiles stop in to see what a modern interior renovation can do for a classical exterior.

The Textile Museum had beautifully installed textiles hanging in three galleries. But we didn't see any information as to dates or regions....but perhaps we misse d it. This museum could be 5x the size there are so many wonderful textiles, rugs, embroideries, serapes etc. in Mexico it did not cover.
