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

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.

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

flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
