Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow, what a splendid display of traditional weaving and beyond. Maximo was there and came to say hello to me. Made my day to speak to him about his weaving and learn about his techniques in weaving. If you love color and history pre Inca, this is the place to be. His imagination is endless. Each piece is a story and just so magical in the presentation of color and stitch detail.

Small but mighty gallery/museum. Laura's work is stunning and you get to observe several pieces, plus a video that gives you a little bit of his background and process. So many beautiful works of art in textiles. The staff is super attentive and even provided a little "tour" talking about some of the pieces. Nothing formal, though. The wonderful gentleman that welcomed us (unfortunetely I forgot his name) noticed how interested we were in Laura's work and went above and beyond to provide us with the little tour. It helped that we speak Spanish fluidly.

We did not have much time to visit the museum. It was nice, but focused a little too much on the Spanish conquest of the area, rather than on the Inca culture

Well, their website says it was open. Google Maps said it wasn't. Google Maps was right.
You can see some random pieces or similar in town... the museum seems promising. Unfortunately, I missed it.

Museum located a few meters from the main square of Cusco, it is a small museum the works that are exhibited are beautiful, the tapestries are like entrances to another universe.
If you are in Cusco, I recommend you visit this museum.

We had seen some work in local shops that looked like the work of Maximo Laura, which made us curious about the work of Maximo himself. The tapestries are beautiful, colourful and attract your attention straight away. The scenes on the tapestries are interesting make you look longer as there is something else to see the second time you look at them.
We loved all of the tapestries and enjoyed our visit to the museum.

This is the best-kept secret of Cusco, Peru. Not to be missed even if it means giving up one more Inca ruin! This is beyond weaving -- it's pure art. Maximo Laura is indeed a national treasure. What an amazing talent. There is an on-site weaver you can observe creating a new masterpiece. Really incredible.

The tapestries in this museum/store are amazing. The artist combines his traditional knowledge practiced from centuries before and his super creative modern ideas in most amazing colors and textures. The prices for tapestries are very reasonable, considering their beauty and how much work put to make them, we didn't buy any of them just for the reason that we have absolutely no available space on our walls at home since we already have many paintings on our walls (we are a family of artists). Otherwise I would buy as many as I could!

It is no surprise that Maximo Laura has been called a living treasure. His gorgeous tapestries are more than worth a visit to this gallery in Cusco. Make the time! The visit to the gallery is free.
