This stunning museum in the heart of Gujarat is home to one of the most impressive collections of Indian textiles on earth. With a wide array of modern pieces, as well as a number dating back more than 500 years, the Calico Museum of Textiles is a must-
see attraction for visitors in search of a deeper understanding of one of India’s oldest traditions.
Tours take place twice during most days of the week and offer travelers an exclusive look at either the main galleries or the Sarabhai Foundation’s extensive collection of religious tapestries and textiles. While visitors say seeing the private collections and
residence is a truly unique experience, it’s best to book well in advance since spots are limited and fill up quickly.
The Calico Museum is located in the state of Gujarat in western India. Tours are offered at 10:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday. Photography is not allowed and museum does not admit children. It is accessible by foot or using a local rickshaw.
