I highly recommend a visit to the Museo Maximo Laura. I was stunned and completely in awe of the work. Such mastery of the art of weaving like I had never seen before. I have so much appreciation for Maximo Laura’s work as is it such a unique exquisite expression of Spirit! Do not miss this treasure!
This is a showroom/museum for the impressive art of Maximo Laura, a fifth generation weaver who took his ancestors art and made a fusion of local art with international tendencies and techniques for a stunning universal result. They are passionate about the art and are not pushy. There is a loom on premises and you see different artists working on Laura’s creation.
Definitely worth visiting if you are in the area and a must if you are into the arts.
A stunning museum housing exceptional tapestries made by renowned Maximo Laura. He is abfifth generation weaver . An artist extraordinaire…. Using the skills of ancestors and then employing his magnifficent new techniques to create unique art pieces. His use of color and texture is sublime… An absolute riot of color and shapes. Marvelous. We were lucky to be shown around by Mr Paulo Soldi, the Museum administrator who took time to explain different aspects of exhibits and unbelievably lucky to encounter the artist himself on a short visit to Cusco.
Maximo Laura is a celebrated Peruvian weaver, and weaving is a big part of Peruvian culture. His work beautifully captures the Peruvian mythology and spirit. This gallery is a great opportunity to see some beautiful work and get a feel for Peruvian culture that is a little bit different to the norm, but still instantly recognizable as Peruvian. Laura is a master, and not to be missed.

Small, Different, Very Enjoyable
We had some spare time so we thought we might visit this museum. So very happy we did. The museum is very small but so different from all the other places of interest. It is all about tapestries with Peruvian and abstract designs. The techniques they are using are just amazing. The colors so vibrant and the designs fantastic. We where very lucky as the owner, creator, designer had just arrived in Cusco from Lima where he is based.
