  • Free admission. The docents made sure to take care of us even though we didn't sign up for a tour and all of the pieces were beautiful. The little shop area was lovely as well.  more »
  • This is a small exhibition. It is located in the beautiful campus of FIT. Are woven and clothing from different regions of Africa. All very colorful and exuberant. During the exhibition, though interesting, I didn't feel much enthusiasm, maybe because you weren't on time or day, I don't know, workshops in which they occur. My surprise happened at the end, when I hugged the lady who was at the front desk and got a wonderful book about the African textile art. Uhuuu!!!!

  • Small museum. Excellent for an afternoon. The current exhibit is a quilt exhibit about the fleeing from country's torn in different strife. Very emotional. This ends in August 2019. Different exhibits come every 4-5 months.
  • The art is so interesting and diverse. The personnel are very helpful and knowledgeable. Never disappointed.
