The Hansiba Museum is a traditional crafts museum in Radhanpur, in the western Indian province of Gujarat. The museum was opened to the public in April 2012. The museum is organized and operated by embroiderers of the Self-Employed Women’s Association (SEWA). It is intended to showcase traditional embroidery and other crafts from across Gujarat and to be a resource centre for designers and researchers in general.

There are about 1700 objects currently in the collection, all of which were contributed by the women themselves. About 240 objects are currently on display to highlight the main types of work carried out by the women.
