The small museum on two floors is taken over by an exhibit of their ikat (and tie-dye) textiles from many different countries. The last time we visited, there was a display of more usual Oaxacan textiles, which might be on display at other times.

If you are into textiles or fabrics then you should not miss this. I did expect traditional Mexican textiles but there was an exhibition of Japanese and Indonesian fabrics too.

Always a delight to see the incredible changing display of textile work from Mexico and other parts of the world. You should see it even if you are not into textiles because you will probably be drawn into the intricate work on display. It's free too.

This is a wonderfully restored and inspired museum, and its founder deserves much credit for sponsoring different craft exhibits.

Don't miss the Shibori exhibit. The gift shop has a nice selection of local crafts made by Oaxacans.

My daughter and I have a strong interest in textiles, fibers, and creating with them. We were greatly impressed with the quality of this little museum. My grandsons were also taken with the creations they saw.

Wonderful textile exhibit. You can easily miss seeing one room on the ground as you think it is not open to the public.

The ground floor is dedicated to special exhibitions, which may or may not be interesting; many are contemporary artists' works of art. The permanent collection upstairs is pretty small--very few items and limited information. Overall, disappointing.

Free admission! And booklets that provide a self-guided tour (in Spanish, not sure if it's available in English). Most of the textiles on display are from other parts of the world; the point is to show the similarities that exist among cultures, especially with regard to tie-dye/ikat/jaspe.
