Reopening of the Amano Museum

Journeying beyond the realm of flavors, let's embrace the vibrant threads of culture woven within the Museo Amano. This year, the museum emerges anew, embracing innovation while still honoring its roots. The Amano family's unwavering commitment to celebrating the evolution of textiles across diverse pre-Colombian cultures takes on an interactive dimension, inviting visitors to step deeper into history.

Despite the winds of change, the essence of Museo Amano remains faithful to its origins. Founded by Yoshitaro Amano, a visionary dedicated to preserving Peru's textile heritage, the museum stands as a testament to his lifelong passion. Across international collaborations and relentless research, Yoshitaro safeguarded the delicate textile treasures of coastal Peru, ensuring their stories reached the world.

Though Yoshitaro Amano sadly passed in the midst of the pandemic, his legacy refuses to be confined by time. Passed like a baton to the next generation, his family now carries forward his legacy. With each visit to the museum, a portion of the entrance fee becomes a pledge—a pledge to protect Peru's coastal cultural heritage, to honor the hands that wove history.

The Museo Amano isn't merely a collection of artifacts; it's a living testament to resilience, innovation, and the unbreakable thread that binds generations. As you traverse the corridors of time within this museum, you're not merely a spectator; you're a part of a legacy, an heir to the stories told by each textile's intricate patterns.
