We loved the museum and the demonstrations. We were ready to spend good money on the very high quality textiles we found in the museum shop, and were extremely disappointed that the clerk barely acknowledged our presence. As a result, we went down the street to an equally good shop and spent our souvenir soles there with someone who appreciated our business. Sad.

After looking at all the bargain tienditas, the wares here were clearly of much higher quality and craft. If you're looking for something really nice, go here for a real find.

Fabulous hand-made items done beautifully. My favorite spot for knitted Alpaca scarves that are unlike any others we saw in our travels.

I really enjoyed seeing the modern and historical textiles. The three weavers demonstrating were wonderful!

Both men and women were weaving when we visited. Sales staff were friendly but didn't put on any pressure. They let you walk around and just explore the museum in the back rooms.

The quality of the goods was obviously WAY better than anything found in the markets. We both bought scarves to keep us warm and the alpaca wool is thick and lush.
