New Address mid-February -- makes for a wonderful morning or afternoon trip. You can get a bus from the bus terminal, takes about 1/2 hour to get there... 0 avenida 4-16 zona 4 San Antonio Aguas Calientes, Sacatepequez (a 8 kilometros/ 5 miles from Antigua)

I really enjoyed this very little museum. They provide a guide and the entrance is 5Q. Lots of explications about the weaving and the different materials used. I found it was s good step before I left for Chichicastenango and Lac Attitlan!
