“Worth the visit”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

Didn't know what to expect. Surprisingly, the museum was very engaging. Another charming building with a small, well-chosen collection. Another way to appreciate the colors of Oaxaca. And wonderful shop as well.

“Elegant Tribal Adornment on display”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This is a most beautiful collection of tribal womens hand made clothing and adornment. The collection shows many typical textiles from the tribes that surround and inhabit Oaxaca. All are hand made, many of them woven on backstrap looms, with natural materials and fabrics that are woven and dyed with indiginous plants. Absolutely incredible

“AMAZING”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

Lovely museum! Not very big, but certainly worth the visit! To see the traditional dresses is quite a joy and some of the stories of the origins of the dresses are quite hilarious. The picture i am uploading is called "tocado de vestido de tehuana". We were told that originally they did not know that the small dress was for a baby and used it on the head thinking it was a head piece but if you look carefully you will see the sleeves of the baby's dress. I am not sure if the misunderstanding came from the early Spaniard women or the french but the misunderstanding makes it a hilarious dress. quite amusing!
