A compact and choice museum with interesting exhibits. I've seen many different shows there, from Japanese kimonos to Indian saris to mediaeval tapestries to modern textiles.

The celebration of Home Economics in Canada with a display of hooked rugs, antique to modern was interesting to me as a hooker. The opening day of this exhibit was special. I was very interested to see changes in style over the last 100+ years....More

This is a wonderful, small museum that always has terrific exhibits for textile lovers. The current show of Artists' Textiles from 1940 - 1976 is really worth a visit.

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
