    Museo Ixchel del Traje IndigenaMuseo Ixchel del Traje Indigena Guatemala City, Guatemala
    The Ixchel Museum of Indigenous Textiles and Clothing is located in Guatemala City, Guatemala and showcases the traditions of dress in this nation and houses excellent collections of textiles, jewelry, books and ceramics and occupies a place on the campus of the Francisco Marroquin University. The textile collection would be the first category to be collected in 1973, when the Textile committee was created by the Tikal Association, and they purchased the first Indian dresses, and other pieces added to the collection by individuals would become the basis for an exhibition in 1974 at the Industrial Park. The committee began to expand, and as it did, so did the collections, so in 1977, the Ixchel Museum of Indigenous Dress was born and the collection continued to grow. A modern building was desired, so in 1986, the foundation for the Development of Ixchel Museum grew up to find money for the museum. The same year, the university would donate land for the museum to use for 100 year lease. Their main collections include clothing, and other materials used by utilitarian and ceremonial functions by the indigenous peoples of the country since the late 19th century to the present. The collections include the Carmen L. Stock Petterson collection of watercolors, Andrew Stock Curruchich oil paintings collection, and the permanent textile collection: The Mayan clothing and weaving through time collection.
