Museo de Textiles y Orfebrería

Museum in Toledo

Opened in 2014 in the former 17th-century college for choirboys, there are some magnificent tapestries here dating as far back as the 15th century. The majority cover religious themes with the largest measuring around 10m in length. The tapestries have an annual airing on Corpus Christi when they hang outside the cathedral (despite the obvious ill effects from the elements). The museum's lower ground floor has an interesting exhibit about the college, complete with audiovisuals and evocative taped choral music.
