Half Day Experience in Antigua Guatemala - Collective tour

11 reviews
No trip to Guatemala is complete without visiting Antigua, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city widely considered Guatemala’s crown jewel. This half-day sightseeing tour from Guatemala City makes it possible to visit on even the shortest of time frames—squeeze it into a long layover or make the most of a quick trip without skimping on any of the sights.

The "Museo Ixchel del Traje Indígena" is located at the "Centro Cultural de la Universidad Francisco Marroquín (UFM)" and is sided by "Museo Popol Vuh", meaning you can easily combine visits to both museums. While travelling in Guatemala, you will certainly notice the beautiful and colorful textiles that are sold at every local market. At "Museo Ixchel del Traje Indígena", the country's textile tradition is preserved and you will be able to stroll along valuable collections of textiles, dresses, ceramics, jewelry and books. Enjoy!

To be honest, I’m not much into textiles. My wife wanted to go and I tagged along. The price of admission can come in a combo package with the art and archeological museum, Popol Voh, next door. It’s all pretty much on one floor, separated into six rooms that has a single path through the various exhibits. Everything is well explained in both English and Spanish. The costumes and changes in attire are vividly shown. For example, the impact and influence on fashion when the Spaniards came to Guatemala. Beautiful and intricate, the blouses were amazing.

This is a very interesting museum but if you can have a tour guide to explain some of the history of the country and peoples, it certainly is of value. We had a fabulous Tour guide who really made the museum interesting. Otherwise there is a lot to read and I am not sure you will absorb all of the written commentaries as well. Guatemala is a very colourful and proud country with an extremely rich history. We were glad we saw this museum.
