This textile museum promotes Oaxaca’s traditional textile crafts through exhibitions, workshops, films, presentations and a library. Themed selections from its stock of around 5000 Oaxacan and international textile pieces, many of them a century or more old, are always on view. There's a top-quality crafts shop here too.

One-hour guided visits (M$10) are given at 5pm on Wednesday, in English and/or Spanish, if five or more people turn up.
