“small but lovely museum”

Museo Textil de Oaxaca
Ranked #9 of 128 things to do in Oaxaca
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 29 October 2013

Not at all crowded when I visited, so I had plenty of time to savor the exhibits, which are few but nicely composed. It made for a lovely, quiet respite from the nosier streets of Oaxaca. The gift shop has some lovely textiles but get your credit card ready!

This museum is part of an archeological area that was excavated-the museum itself-small, pleasant, and 15 minutes. But in the same complex there is a pretty chapel, and 2 doors up in the same complex, a display about the excavation, and right now an engaging photo exhibit of different clothing and people's from different regions of the country. All together it is worth a stop

This is a great little museum even for those not interested in textiles. It's free to enter and you can see a lot of the traditional village outfits. It's just a little museum so doesn't take up much time.

The building that houses this museum is very very nice, beautiful architecture. It's worth visiting just to see the building if you ask me.

The small collection was nice but would benefit from some written explanations about geographical sources, materials and techniques

If you are, in any way, interested in fabric, yarns, weaving, needle arts or clothing design, you will love this museum. They have amazing exhibits from top traditional artisans from the villages of Oaxaca and from modern designers alike. I have oohed & ahhed at many an amazing huipil (traditional blouse/dress) or gorgeous rebozo (shall or wrap) that are beautifully displayed in this lovely museum. No need to attempt stealing anything! They have an amazing gift shop with top-quality goods for you & your home.
