This small museum, on a side street near the more major streets of Dundas and Bay St., is well worth a visit for anyone interested in textile art. When I was there, one of its two floors featured a series of about 15 works by...More

It is gallery, a small museum, but beautiful. We enjoyed learning about the making if kimonos, and enjoyed the multimedia targeting the whole family.

This is a small museum but large enough for two special exhibits. Both were well displayed and allowed the visitors to come close to the pieces on exhibit. We followed a tour led by an extremely knowledgeable docent. They do not display a core collection....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.

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
