It was so beautiful! I learned much about the Mayan culture. I appreciate how all these materials are preserved and well kept over the time!

“If you are at all interested in understanding the history of textiles in Guatemala, this is a must”
Reviewed November 14, 2015

A carefully and beautifully presentation on the history of textiles in Guatemala. The building itself, is beautiful as are the gardens in which it is located. There is an admission price for both this museum and the Museo Popol Vuh next door. Also student admission prices. The closest place to eat is a short walk to the cafeteria at Galileo University next door where there is a Burger King. Wheel chair accessible. They will call for a taxi if you would like one. Gift shop is expensive, but the quality of the textiles is high.

“Traditional fabrics and clothing”
Reviewed November 8, 2015

Coupled with the Popol Vuh museum, in the same complex, this small museum presents the traditions and history of weaving , fabric and clothes in Guatemala. Certainly worth a trip, especially in combination with the Popol Vuh museum.

“Not to be missed when in Guate”
Reviewed October 28, 2015

Museo Ixchel is the world's best collection of traditional Guatemala indigenous weavings. It is located close to zone ten and accessible on foot or by car.
Arrive early so you can also visit the Popol Vu museum across the street, another must in the capital.

“A unique museum for a unique cultural experience.”
Reviewed October 23, 2015

Framed by the beautiful campus of University Francisco Marroquin, this unique museum has the most complete collection of indigenous traditional clothing as well as other interesting pieces that constitute the Guatemala indigenous culture.
There will be no better place to learn and understand the different meanings and significance of one of the most interesting features of Guatemalan culture and heritage.
