The Museum can be a bit hard to find, tucked, as it is on the corner of a residential block and on the edge of 'eat street' but it's worth persevering.
Although the display space is limited, what they do with it is captivating. The...More
This museum had a wonderful display of international quilts. Secondhand books for sale adjacent to the reference library at a very good price. The Canadian craft section was interesting. The shop was good with lots of items which could be purchased.
Visited this museum with a friend who is a quilt maker in their spare time. The items from the permanent collection had good historical descriptions, sort of history meets art, meets textile aficionados. There was also a rotating exhibit while I visited very good as...More
We love textiles and decided to visit this museum while in Toronto. It's close to the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Eaton Center if you are visiting either of those locations. The current exhibits include modern international quilts and textiles over time in Canada....More

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
vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
