I really enjoyed my visit to the museum. A Guatemalan woman showed us around, she was VERY nice and explained everything very well and funny. I think it's very intesting to hear about their culture and the meanings behind their clothes. You can buy almost everything - clothing, bags, purses, jewelry - and everything is beautfiul! Worth the visit!
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!
What a gem of a place is this little museum situated near the open market. The admission price of $4 is quite reasonable and includes a guide. Our English speaking guide was quite good and gave us a very informative tour of the exhibits of manikins dressed in authentic textiles and showing how the various textiles were made. There was... 更多
It was really neat to be able to see the different styles of Traditional Guatemalan clothing and weaves from different villages. The staff were happy to give us a tour and answer many questions about the variety of textiles. We also a woman weaving when we got there. A lot of hard work and muscle goes into each piece!
This is a great place to start your adventure into the markets of Guatemala. The staff at the museum will gladly give you a tour and answer all of your questions about the variety of textiles available in Guatemala. You may also purchase beautiful examples of the handcrafted textiles for wearing or your home.
Enjoyed this very much. Unfortunately, it was later in my visit. I wish I'd gone there first. There was a small fee and then my guide explained each of the displays to me. They have made diorama's demonstrating the weaving process and learning which groups/villages weave what kind of cloth. How these are worn and why. The only minor negative... 更多
At 15q entry per person, this was definitely my highlights visit in Antigua. I had a wonderful English speaking guide that was an absolute wealth of knowledge, and I have walked away with further insight into textiles as well as Guatemalan culture. There is such a variety in the clothes and textiles on display, I definitely wish I had of... 更多
You'll acquire a better understanding of the textiles, zarapes and the native customs from experts. This will help you when going shopping and there are plenty of amazing textiles, purses, etc to select from.
I loved visiting the museum. So many unique old textiles (and many are for sale)! I purchased a beautiful embroidered handbag last year, that I wear to art openings and nice dinners. Definitely a statement piece! It's hard to tell exhibition from gift shop, since it's all mingled together. It's so worth it to take the guided tour. Which they... 更多
