Interesting history of textiles in the area. I was a little disappointed in the items for sale in the adjoining store.

Great to watch the traditional weaving and see that some products you buy are locally made using traditional methods - so many of the products found in the streets seemed to be made offshore. bought a couple of products to remind us of a great trip.

This is a very interesting small museum - with live textile making - and the opportunity to hook up to training to make your own! It's a good place to visit if you have 30 minutes to spare - and the quality of the weaving is superb - as are many of the museum items. If you plan to buy... More

It is has 2 locations. A small store in the same building as the Museo Largo and a much larger one on Avenida El Sol not far from the LAN office. If you are into textiles and weaving, the one on Avenida El Sol is a must.

We visited this place at Chinchero just outside Cuzco it was very informative the young local woman explained the whole process from fleece to making the actual products. We only had a short time there but could have spent ages and the products for sale were of a very high standard, only wish we had more room in the luggage,... More

Having an interest in all types of handicraft I was delighted to get the opportunity of some free time to visit this museum and see the weavers at work. I spent about half an hour in the small museum which explains the importance of carrying on the tradition of weaving within the community and also getting a fair price for... More

I was delighted when I stumbled upon this museum and store. There were live demonstrations, very interesting exhibits and beautiful textiles. It greatly increased my appreciation and knowlege of the culture and the significance of their textiles. There was no cost to visit, I spent about 30 minutes there and enjoyed every part of it.

These textiles are exquisite. Go and buy something! They are very expensive but still a bargain considering all the hours of expert craftsmanship. Together as a group these are some of the finest textiles that you will ever see at one glance. Just to be in the same the same room is a delight. My wife almost bought a $1000US... More

This is a great place to find locally made textiles, and actually watch the people who make them. It's a cooperative and when you purchase something the name and picture of the person who made it is attached/ Several of the women and men who are part of the cooperative are working at the back, and the atmosphere is energetic....

... not so great place if you are traveling on a budget. Pieces made here are sourced locally and have wonderful information on the individuals who created the textile, but expect the prices to be no less than $100 for a decent piece of work. Again, great for just browsing and reading up on the locals who make the designs,... More
