The museum is very well organized and allows one to know the artist and his impressive work. We left the museum highly-spirited, very impacted by the author´s imagination and the overall beauty and the craftmanship. Highly recommended.

If you are visiting Cusco you would be foolish to miss popping in to see the beautiful tapestries on display and for sale. Such wonderful colours and designs. Remarkable art work in textiles. I was blown away.
