Museo Textil de Oaxaca — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Museum • (C)
Set in a nicely restored 18th-century colonial monastery, this small but delightful museum, recently opened in 2008, is dedicated to the study and preservation of the textiles of Oaxaca and México, exhibiting rotating collections of mostly hand-woven rugs and clothing from local, national, and even international weavers. There’s also a modest library with books about textiles and weaving, as well as a small retail shop selling quality hand-woven textiles, both open daily from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. and 4 - 8 p.m.
