  • If you want to learn about fabric without being pushed to purchase, this place is a gem. It is a museum, a shop and a workshop. You will learn about the importance of textile in the Peruvian culture and see Qechuan people weaving beautiful fabrics.
  • Beautiful free museum and fantastic shop. Four craftspeople were weaving and knitting while we were there. Prices range from 10 soles to hundreds, so something for every budget. Spend your soles here and buy something that is truly authentic and hand made.
