The day we went to the Textile Museum of Canada there was a very interesting display. The format was supposed to show the diversity of textile in art forms and the connections between art and fabric. There were a couple of displays that I didn't...More

I enjoyed by visit, but found the collection (or what was on display) small, especially in comparison to the entrance fee, which I found to be rather large.

Great items and exhibits. This is a lesser known museum, and it's never crowded which is a great bonus. I would not recommend this for kids.

After a walk in Queen's Park we were slightly close to this little museum and on Wednesday it was Pay what You can and we chose to visit it to occupy our time. It was somehow interesting and they have some activities regarding all sorts...More

The textile museum is off the beaten track -- small with always a new exhibit. They display historical textiles (rugs, quilts for example) regularly with lots of appealing educational information. It has one of the best gift shops with local artist textiles, children's gifts, clothing,...More

This is quite a small museum. It has a number of interesting aspects but is quite pricey for the entertainment value.

Unfortunately when we went the top floor was closed and the receptionist on the first floor didn't even know. The exhibits that we saw were a little run down, missing labels, etc. Thoroughly enjoyed some Christmas shopping in the gift shop.

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
