Tucked into 2 small floors of a non museum looking building, I must confess I expected more Canadian textiles on display. An interesting display of bead work and the current exhibition is by Sheila Hicks called Material Voices involving weaving and fibre art. A shop...More

This little museum is tucked away in the heart of the city but what it lacks for in space it makes up for in quality. If you like textiles and surface design than this place is a lovely discovery. For anyone in creative fields or...More

Not huge but interesting and well-curated with an extensive gift shop. TOP TIP - buy the triple pass for this with the Shoe Museum and the Gardiner Museum for 20$ and make a big saving

This museum was a gem! We loved both exhibits - Bliss ( flowered fabrics) and Beaded garments. The gift shop was wonderful. Very enjoyable.

I really liked this little museum, as did my teenage daughter; it is very well curated, with interesting but very focused exhibits. The gift shop is great, too.

It's a tiny place more like a store; couple of small stories with stuff sparsely filling the floor. Takes just half an hour to go through the whole thing.

It's worth getting a 3Pass which allows half price entry into the Bata Shoe museum, the Gardiner and the Textile museum. The textile and special exhibits are certainly worth a look as they are very visually appealing. I especially liked Worlds on a String which...More

I was a little bit disappointed here. Only part of the museum was open so I received a reduction in the entrance fee, but wasn't very inspired with what I did see. It's set up for meetings, workshops etc and has a good shop.

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
