It is gallery, a small museum, but beautiful. We enjoyed learning about the making if kimonos, and enjoyed the multimedia targeting the whole family.

This is a small museum but large enough for two special exhibits. Both were well displayed and allowed the visitors to come close to the pieces on exhibit. We followed a tour led by an extremely knowledgeable docent. They do not display a core collection....More

Textile Museum of Canada is a little museum but big in colour and beauty. There are 2 special exhibitions: 1) "Huicholes – A People Walking Towards the Light" is about the artwork of Mexican Huichol Indigenous artisan José Benítez Sánchez featuring his yarn paintings as...More

I discovered the existence of this little museum almost by accident. I don't think it engages in much advertising. It's a bit off the beaten path, and is located on a three floors of what seems to be an apartment building. From their website, I...More

The current exhibit (until Sept.4, 2017) on the Huichol yarn paintings from western Mexico is fascinating. The other current exhibit (until January 21, 2018) is on Japanese textiles, with beautiful kimonos. There is a nice gift shop.

Two floors of textile goodness, and an amazing little shop. One floor was closed prepping for the next big exhibit. So they gave us tickets to get in again free another time.

I really wanted this to be great, but it's hard to say it was even good. One floor was closed for setting up another display. The attendant offered us return tickets rather than a reduced rate, which may be their policy, but considering I live...More

Best to check their website to confirm the exhibit before making the trek to see it. Although the concept is interesting, the most recent exhibit of mainly photographs of hand stitching samplers from Nova Scotia in the early 1900's was not what I expected from...More

We saw one small visiting exhibit with very few textiles in it, an exhibit of children's work from the YMCA, and the main exhibition space was closed. Oh and the permanent collection... is in a secret warehouse somewhere. Deeply disappointed, and not advised at the...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of
