This is a beautiful museum with amazing textiles from various pre-Columbian eras that is absolutely worth a visit. The explanations are in Spanish and English and are extensive. The textiles are quite gorgeous and the restoration work is quite impressive.

This is a beautiful museum with fibers that you cannot believe were handmade over 500 years ago. It blew me away. The signage is well done and the displays are beautiful. Well worth your time stepping back in history.
