“Always Interesting and Stimulating”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

I've been visiting this museum on visits to Oaxaca for several years and never fail to find it a true joy. Always stimulating and often provocative--it provides wonderful, creative and appreciative exposure for textile arts from this area.

“Self Image Exhibit”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Not only is this museo free, this is excellent. Run here. You will find surprirsing woven expressions of self image, which may startle or entrance, as it did us.

“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
