The aim of the Permanent Exhibition is to present the evolution of Guatemalan textile tradition from pre-Hispanic times to the present. A visit to its four rooms provides a glimpse of its origins, and the variations and continuities it has undergone over time; weaving instruments, materials and techniques are also presented.
The temporary exhibitions aim to show the spread and trends of Guatemalan textile tradition, and to present the cultural, technical, and aesthetic wealth sheltered in the museum’s collections.
Analyses have been carried out to maintain the museum’s guidelines, and to enrich the documentation and the textile collections held therein. Also to renew public interest.
In the Temporary Rooms, educational tours on distinct Guatemalan traditions are presented, with emphasis on the garments and weavings under study.
