  • Great museum 30 sols to enter . Amazing collection of woven material (Pre-colombinos). Colours explainations and photos. And above all textiles. Just beautiful
  • Great private museum with a complete exhibition on textiles. The guided tour is a must! It brings life to the place with lots of anecdotes. An unmissable chance to interact directly with Peru.
