A great little stop, along with the sister Popul Vuh museum . A good history lesson on the weaving styles and techniques of Guatemala, and gives you an understanding of the different pattern, colors and places where they were and still are traditionally made. If you are looking for something special , this will help you understand where to look. We were looking for patterns with birds, and pieces done by a back-strap loom, and this helped us know where to look for them on our trip. I also had a wonderful gift store . Easy to get to - we used Uber from Zona 10.

Weaving is a prominent craft in Guatemala. In many regions women wear traditional hand woven clothes daily. This museum situated on beautiful grounds of a private university tells the history of weaving in Guatemala. Several videos are available for viewing. The museum also has a gift shop. I recommend it.

Museo Ixchel is a beautiful little textile museum tucked away in the Universidad Francisco Marroquin . The building itself is an architectural gem made out of red bricks. It is a treat to see all the stunning Mayan textiles & really get to know the history . The main atrium of the museum also serves as an art gallery & one can get to see many art exhibitions , these exhibitions are rotated about twice a month.

An interesting, colorful introduction to history and styles of indigenous/traditional costumes of the Mayan region/Guatemala. This museum, located on (or at the edge of?) Universidad Francisco Marroquin, is well-paired with the Museo Popol Vuh (across a small plaza), with its archeological collection. An excellent intro to our continuing tour of Mayan sites in Guatemala over the next week.
