This was our first stop in Peru. We learned about the different types of llamas, alpacas, vicunas and guanaco. It was very helpful to learn about these animals early. Nice gift shop with many alpaca products. Also an attached Sol store that specializes in baby alpaca products. I would have liked to have had more time to shop after the... 更多
loads of great info.great displays, a opportunity to see a variety of camelids . they have a great presentation of how the animals contributed to the economy. A donation is the admission, with a huge gift shop with so many options to buy something really cool and fair trade
This place gives such a nice opportunity to interact with llama, alpaca and vicuna. Take the opportunity to feed them and enjoy the experience. The shopping at the end was unexpectedly nice as well.

This living textile museum showcases weaving. You can learn about alpaca's, llama's, vicuna's, and guanaco's, and feed them alfalfa. Watch fleece being spun into fibers and dyed using natural methods. There is a store, gift shop, and snack cafe, as well as restrooms.
As other reviews have said, this should be a stop along the way to Pisac if you are fortunate enough to have the time and flexibility for experiencing the culture and how the textile products are made as well as feeding the llamas and alpacas!
A good introduction to the Llama, alpaca and vicuna raised for their fibers. Great education into different qualities of the fibers. There's a beautiful, well stocked store to load up on a huge assortment of locally made products. Beautiful setting!
