Was not expecting the scale of this exhibit. The volume and variety of the clothes on display was quite staggering.

Beautiful exhibits and lots of fun, interactive ways to try your hand at different techniques. It's right in Centro so it's fun to drop in when walking around town.

Nice museum but the collection is small especially that as a culture they have much more to be proud of and to show. There is a shop near the museum but you can find better options in the other shops in oaxaca

A small (45 minutes, if you dawdle) museum full of jaw-dropping examples of local garb. A must for anyone interested in embroidery.

This is a wonderful museum in the center of everything. It was a good lesson in the dyes, processes and craftsmanship of the region.

I've visited this wonderful museum several times over the past few years. The exhibitions are always professionally mounted and the excellent free lectures are enlightening. The museum is small, but definitely worth the trip. The gift shop sells high quality textiles and other local crafts.

Free, but donations are encouraged. Nice gift shop. That's another way to support them.
