Each year the Centro de Textiles Tradicionales del Cusco gathers together with the other museums of Cusco to celebrate International Museum Day, normally held on May 18th but often celebrated throughout the month of May. On a weekend close to this date, Cusco museums hold a parade up Av. Sol and around Plaza de Armas. Independently, each museum organizes free activities for the public.
Since 2015, the CTTC has offered free tours of the museum Weaving Lives and free spinning and weaving classes in honor of International Museum Day. If you are in Cusco during the month of May, keep on eye out for this opportunity! If you plan on attending the event, please let us know so we can plan accordingly.
