Within walking distance from the main square and Santa Domingo church. Quiet setting, with a tasteful decor in the courtyard and inside. Pieces were annotated and helpful. Most were handwoven garments and decorative representing a range of local indigenous styles and colors. A good place to cool off and spend 30 - 60 minutes. Worth a visit.

The collection of textiles is beautiful, and it's a pleasure to sit in the courtyard, enjoying the lovely architecture. Kudos to Oaxaca for their many lovely museums, many with free entry.

This trip, the exhibit was of the shawls, or rebosas, part of the traditional clothing. Last time it was huipils. Always beautifully displayed, and of a limited size so as not to be overwhelming. Textiles are an important part of the local culture! Interestingly, a modern exhibit of interpretations of the rebosa was on display at the museum in the... More

I have visited twice with other weavers and the exhibits have been well thought out and worthy of serious consideration. The occasional market featuring local artisans has the highest quality textiles I have found in Oaxaca city. We happily purchased hand tied hand woven ikat rebozos and hand spun cotton naturally dyed clothing. Give yourself time here if you are... More

This museum shows traditional textile patterns from Oaxaca. This colonial building also hosts exhibitions and workshops on different weaving techniques. It is not huge in size and you can spend some time enjoying it as it is not (or was not when we visited) crowded like other attractions in town.

This is just a few minutes from the zocalo, and entrance is free although donations are requested. It is set in yet another of Mexico's beautiful, restored buildings, and the pieces are sensitively set. The exhibition covers two galleries downstairs & one upstairs, and mainly concentrates on the weaving traditions through the centuries. As someone who is interested in all... More

Exquisite, if small, display of the great variety of intricate style and fabrics represented by Oaxacan weaving. The manner of display and the architecture of the museum's building are themselves worth a visit.

The only textile museum in Mexico and one that serves Mexican traditions very well. Supports young artists as well as delivering a historical message.
