This museum is inside the La Seo Cathedral and did not enjoy it due to bland colors ( faded ) and lack of explanation in English. Only for those who love tapestries...

Now this is a must visit if you go to Zaragoza. The tapestries shown offer you an amazing experience of centuries ago fashion and lifestyle. You can literary stay there for days, just sitting in front of them and exploring the details. Unfortunately photography is prohibited, so just go and enjoy the show for as long as you can!

Beautifully presented, worth a visit if you like tapestries. I think there was a special lift for wheelchairs but normal access is by steps.

This extensive collection of tapestries is located in the La Seo Cathedral. Each tapestry is huge, and depicts a historic or religious scene. Many have been carefully repaired as might be required, and there was explanation as to how the tapestries were originally made in the 15th and 16th centuries.

Although one has to climb several flights of stairs, the visit is worth it to see such incredible tapistries. Unfortunately my spouse could not join me because there is no lift.

Once inside the Seo cathedral, there´s a possibility to visit the tapestry museum, and don´t miss it, lots of very nice medieval tapestry telling histories in the same way we have in a painting, really cool

If you are an admirer of wall art and the looming and embroidery skills of medieval Europe, this museum will be an important stop in any visit to Spain. The climate here is a significant reason for the nearly perfect condition of these masterworks.

As a rule I am rather bored by tapestries but these are quite exceptional. They show scenes from life, starting shortly after 1400. Colours, designs, movement are all remarkable. It's like looking at a film made 600 years ago. Highly recommended.

Accessed via the La Seo del Salvador, and included in the price of entry, the tapistry museum consists of three mid-sized rooms filled with tapistries. There is no English commentary/captions, only Spanish - however, the narratives are biblical, so one can make decent guesses at the imagery, and the tapistries are works of art. A quick stop recommended.
