“The building alone is worth the visit”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

During my visit, the textiles on display were from Chile, and unfortunately no local textiles were on display. The visiting collection from Chile was very insteresting and nicely curated though. Most amazing was the building itself however, they did a great job restoring this colonial gem. There is no entrance fee - donations only, and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

“Tiny but fabulous”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

This is a very small museum and, depending on your love of textiles, could take you no time at all to get through or several hours. The exhibitions are always changing and don't always expect to see Oaxacan or even Mexican textiles on display. They have a very international sample in their permanent collection. Don't miss the shop either. You'll find some of the highest quality Oaxacan textiles on sale here and expect to pay top dollar for them.

“A great idea, but not done properly”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We went this year, and it was interesting, but NOT at all about the spectacular textiles of Oaxaca (it was a middle-eastern exhibit). It absolutely should be on the world-renowned weaving, embroidery, etc. of the region.
