  • I was gladly impressed by the display and organization of the items in this museum. Fabrics and textiles made hundreds of years ago with such great skill and art. Unbelievable!  more »
  • The Amano museum is excellent, has an exceptional collection and a great museum, very interactive and didactic, with great explanations and examples. It made my visit a lot easier. Although it does not possess many objects such as the Larco Museum know how to make the most of it. Congratulations. Hopefully and soon they have a place to park.

  • Great museum 30 sols to enter . Amazing collection of woven material (Pre-colombinos). Colours explainations and photos. And above all textiles. Just beautiful
  • Great private museum with a complete exhibition on textiles. The guided tour is a must! It brings life to the place with lots of anecdotes. An unmissable chance to interact directly with Peru.
