This is a hidden gem, amazing museum with a great collection of the textiles from Guatemala. Joana our guide was great, she explained everything and gave us an amazing experience. We were extremely impressed with the museum and her knowledge. This is a must do if you go to Guatemala City, do not miss it.

Este tour fue muchísimo más interesante de lo que pensé. siempre me ha llamado la atención las telas indígenas, pero gracias a Joana pude aprender muchísimo de su historia y cómo la misma ha ido cambiando a través del tiempo. Joana es una excelente guía, muy profesional y hace que todo sea fácil de entender. 100% recomendada

I'm so happy I was able to have Joana's company when visiting the Ixchel museum! She expanded on the exhibit with her knowledge and answered all my questions. Definitely recommend booking this tour if you're interested in indigenous fashion and history!

Excelente tour!!! Joana es una persona muy amable y muy bien preparada en el tema de textiles. El museo es una maravilla, excelente la exposición. Vale mucho visitar este museo pero sobre todo que Joana les de la explicación. Sí tomaría otro tour con Joana. :)
