Coming from Europe, more or less everything in Canada seemed huge to me. This was the exception. The textile museum is TINY, and the exhibition sparse, so you get to see very little for the ticket price. When I was there, much space was taken...More

Thank you for your visit, though we are saddened to hear it was not a positive experience. Our exhibition spaces turnover frequently and cover a considerable range of craft and contemporary-art related subjects. Because of this it is always advisable to check our website in...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.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
