  • This was interesting but unfortunately we are english speaking and there was little information in our language.  more »
  • Free admission...small exhibit space, but interesting. As others have said, the store is better than the museum.  more »
  • Small but excellent museum. Free admission located within blocks of Zócalo. Permanent and temporary exhibitions. A lovely space. Probably most will spend about 45 minutes there. Interesting room which explains Indian loom and parts in back.
  • A breathtaking museum with outstanding exhibits and workshops. The museum store is also wonderful. This place is a true gem and a must visit in Oaxaca.
