Museo Ixchel - Museum Guatemala City - Guatemala

The museum charters GuatemalaÔÇÖs infamous textile history as reflected in the various traditional costumes that both men and women have proudly worn since colonial times. Garments worn for special occasions and ceremonies are displayed alongside typical everyday dress, highlighting the important part textiles play in Mayan culture. Museo Ixchel also serves as an attractive space for painting exhibitions, cultural events and conferences. Guided tours are available.
