Must see if you want to understand more of the people you meet on the street, understand how they dress and value what you see/buy locally. Very professional setup in a beautiful renovated building.

The part of the fabrics is very small. There were no demonstrations at all. The films are too short and uninteresting. The place that seemed to me the most interesting was closed. Really do not recommend coming to this museum.

If you like textiles and are interested in the different villages and their own distinct weavings, this place is worth a visit.

It may not be the most exciting museum, but you will see some of Chiapas' most beautiful cultural dresses in a really beautiful space

This is a great collection of textiles from Chiapas and Guatemala. Some are displayed in glass cases but there are also drawers you can pull out to view more of the collection. You can spend hours in there.

It's a free admission for the textile museum. Only the historical museum that is in the same building charges a small admission fee.

Hi Henri!, unfortunately Puerto Chiapas is far from San Cristobal, (5-6 hrs. max. by car one way) all depends on the hours you have available to come and go, if you need more help let me know!
