Fodor's Review

The Indigenous Art Museum has moved from its previous home in the Caserón de la Capellanía, to a smaller but well-designed space near the Recoleta. The museum preserves the 4,000-year-old weavings and tapestry art of the Andean world, especially communities around Tarabuco. The tour in English is interesting and the elaborate textile work—including a display of costumes showcasing regional fiesta garb—is truly impressive; there are also loom demonstrations. The onsite shop is very expensive; there are better options in town for buying.
