Museo del Sarape y Trajes Mexicanos

Museum in Saltillo

An excellent museum devoted to the Mexican sarapes (blankets with an opening for the head) that Saltillo is famous for. There's a priceless collection to admire, and lots of fascinating background information about weaving techniques, looms, natural dyes and regional variations. There's also a small section of regional dresses from around the country. You'll find very detailed English information in each room and there's a store next door for purchases.
