The "Museo Ixchel del Traje Indígena" is located at the "Centro Cultural de la Universidad Francisco Marroquín (UFM)" and is sided by "Museo Popol Vuh", meaning you can easily combine visits to both..... more »
superb museum on traditional costumes and textiles not to be missed, and next door to Popul Vuh museum more »
Great museum to visit. I found it very interesting to understand Mayan textiles and the history of Guatemala. The staff were very friendly and I would recommend the museum, if you’re visiting Guatemala.
Really interesting and well done. Absolutely recommended, maybe better to visit before visiting the rest of the country to better understand what you are seeing in textiles.
