We were welcomed by one of the hosts named Nancy, who was very friendly and informative about the great craftsmanship of Maximo Laura. His work is displayed in a great way and some of it is available for purchase at reasonable prices. Keep up the good work! And do pass by this place if your in the neighbourhood.

I havent heard about him, but that is my lack of culture! Obviously he must be a well renowed tapestry artist... and has such an incredible imagination!! The use of vivid colors is amazing! I would have liked to buy at least one of his masterpieces, but they are well beyond my possibilities.
Anyway, go there and enjoy, its free!!

It was incredible to feel the beauty of Laura's artworks. If you are in Cusco you should visit this magical shop.

We visited the museum during our time in Cusco and were blown away by the vibrant colors, the range of textures, the intricate designs and most of all, the absolute beauty of these textiles. We have never seen anything like it. Such talent and vision. We highly recommend taking some time to come into the museum and look around. It's truly a magical experience.
