This is a wonderful museum in the center of everything. It was a good lesson in the dyes, processes and craftsmanship of the region.

I've visited this wonderful museum several times over the past few years. The exhibitions are always professionally mounted and the excellent free lectures are enlightening. The museum is small, but definitely worth the trip. The gift shop sells high quality textiles and other local crafts.

Go! This is an amazing small museum. One of the finest we've seen in many travels. The exhibition about weaving with down was fascinating. The museum space is delightful as well.

The Museo Textile Oaxaca was a beautiful museum with space for workshops. The exhibitions were beautifully augmented with videos, photographs, interpretive art works, as well as the actual textiles and garments.

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