Fascinating display of textiles from around the world in the exhibition we saw, but few were from Mexico. Do not expect a comprehensive introduction to the textiles of the state of Oaxaca. Definitely worth a visit.

When a nomadic culture becomes settled, then the artists can get to work. This is where textiles come in: Blankets, rugs, wall hangings..... How does one get the raw material for the rugs and the other weavings? Well, you have to cultivate something whether it be cotton (a planted crop) or animals from which you can get your wool. Once...

This is a small museum packed with outstanding textiles. Don't miss it. The exhibit we saw had items from around the world. Be advised that this museum has limited information posted in English, so you will miss a lot of information if you do not speak Spanish. The staff, however, is very helpful. The gift shop also carries lovely examples... More

Nearby the Zocalo in the Calle Hidalgo you will find this museum. This is a reconstruction of older buildings which include very modern elements. Also you will find elements from the textile patterns on the wall of the constructions. In the high valley of Oaxaca in the small villages they are producing a lot of high quality textiles. This museum... More

This Museum is housed in a beautiful old building and contains a number of beautiful textiles which are exhibited very well -some museums could learn from the way light is used here. There are some information panels showing the numerous varieties of textiles and weaving areas in the area but alas like all other captions they are in Spanish. In... More

The museum is located near the Zocalo and is a conversion of older buildings that include very modern elements. Oaxaca is know for the quality of its textiles and the museum is a showcase of the art incorporated into the textiles. In an outside courtyard, ladies from the area, practiced their weaving and the are they impart in the fabric.

A must, especially if you are into textiles. They have strong exhibits. Gift shop is nice - high quality and somewhat high prices.

Textiles may not seem very appealing to some but this museum includes amazing examples of this complex and complicated art form and an extraoridnary museum space well worth seeing. There is a special exhibit space in addition to the permanent collection. Worth a visit even if you don't think you'd like to spend time with weaving, cloth, and extraordinary designs... More
