Worth a visit if you’re really into textiles or are already in the area. The collection is quite small.

I don't have any particular interest in weaving, but have loved my two visits here. This year, I vow to pay better attention, so that my visits to the weaving villages will be more interesting.

Nice and cool. Interesting place to wander around on a hot day. Quite a small museum but several good exhibits. Toilets very clean.

This small museum has interesting exhibits that rotate. It is free and fun to visit. If you are looking for high quality textiles, the gift shop has some (with prices to match the quality). Well worth a visit.

If I had come with a small child, I might rate it higher, especially if my child took part in a hands-on demonstration. The museum is pretty small but I did learn a couple things while in there. If you have a child, you really...More

Free, but donations are encouraged. Nice gift shop. That's another way to support them.
