This museum is a little jewel that seems to be relatively undiscovered. Being a potter, weaver, painter and goldsmith myself, I was attracted to the extensive collections in this tiny museum. Even though the guide spoke in Spanish I was able to understand most of what she said. The textiles are incredible and worth the journey to see. I recommend any serious artist to check out this museum. I will look forward to returning after it is renovated. I hope I will have another opportunity to come to Peru. I hope, I hope.

Hi, there has been a few changes to the museum and it would be a big help if you could update this page to show the correct information. The website is We are open Tuesday- Sunday from 10am to 5 pm. The cost to enter the museum is $10. There is an additonal fee for a guide which is well worth it. Thank you!
