Really interesting museum of traditional crafts, housed in multiple buildings and with an outdoor area as well. If only it wasn’t 110 today. The main display has a cooling system and was small but very interesting. The textiles are separate in a run-down setting and...More

The indoor displays are certainly worthy of five stars: amazing carvings and paintings with very good information. The temporary textile exhibition was also excellent.

the textiles on display are truly awestriking - the restof the stalls/huts are very disappointing & in dire need of a little TLC (which I believe is happening). Murals on all the walls are really interesting if you take a few minutes to pay attention.

We booked a guided tour at the museum, and because we’re interested in textiles, we asked the guide to start with that section. We’ll, we didn’t get to the rest of the museum; their textile collection is that good, if a little under-curated. There also...More
