  • We visited the museum with great expectation to know the history and the production process, but it was disappointing. There are very few objects exposed, but no information whatsoever. Soon it enters the store space where the focus is all for sales. The part that paid off on this 20min tour was the view of the city of Cuenca, from the café that sits on the top floor of the shop.

  • Very nice sales exhibition with informative short tour. Very friendly, helpful staff. Good café with a beautiful view. And of course - wonderful hats!

  • It is a store, in fact. There are a couple of old machines to see and visitors have to ask for opening a room where more antiques are displayed. Staff is only for selling hats. It is within walking distance from the Calderon Park.
  • Great shop for the traditional toquilla straw hats, nice people and amazing view point in the Barranco but as a museum is a small place.
