I discovered the existence of this little museum almost by accident. I don't think it engages in much advertising. It's a bit off the beaten path, and is located on a three floors of what seems to be an apartment building. From their website, I...More

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.

I was fascinated with so much involved in the textile art and design. What a fantastic field. Textile industry, fashion, creativity and design can influence, rebel and contribute so much to the culture and its representation! I am very glad I visited it. You should...More

Two floors of textile goodness, and an amazing little shop. One floor was closed prepping for the next big exhibit. So they gave us tickets to get in again free another time.

I really wanted this to be great, but it's hard to say it was even good. One floor was closed for setting up another display. The attendant offered us return tickets rather than a reduced rate, which may be their policy, but considering I live...More

Best to check their website to confirm the exhibit before making the trek to see it. Although the concept is interesting, the most recent exhibit of mainly photographs of hand stitching samplers from Nova Scotia in the early 1900's was not what I expected from...More

We saw one small visiting exhibit with very few textiles in it, an exhibit of children's work from the YMCA, and the main exhibition space was closed. Oh and the permanent collection... is in a secret warehouse somewhere. Deeply disappointed, and not advised at the...More

If you value art even just a little bit, you can appreciate this quaint museum. It has a bit of history, and culture nestled in one location.

The museum is modest in size, spread over three floors of a compact building. If you are expecting standard textile displays, you're about to have your mind opened. We went to see the Sheila Hicks exhibit. Brilliant! I have to admit that the last time...More

This is definitely not the Louvre - so moderate expectations- but I had an enjoying visit. I came in without any knowledge of textiles and their role in art, but it didn't really matter. In particular, the Sheila Hicks exhibit was fantastic. The place is...More

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
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
