  • Nice museum, very small though. Cool exhibits for people who have appreciation for textiles, dyeing of fabric etc. would be nice if they had more exhibits in addition to the Latin American and Japanese. Good with the library map pass.
  • Good if you already have a strong knowledge and appreciation for textiles. Wed at 5pm is pay what you can. Tiny museum so an hour or 2 is plenty. I recommend it to weaver's, dyers, knitters, textile artist, etc. but not otherwise.
  • Very friendly staff and some really interesting pieces in their permanent collection!
  • Showed up an electric wheelchair For a Japanese textile exhibit. Fully wheelchair accessible. Toronto's Hidden gem
  • Better than expected. They had 2 expositions (1 per floor) Japanese and Huichole textiles. The guided tour was great. They also have a hands on where you can operate a number of weaving machines.

Where to stay in Toronto

Most visitors stay in the historic neighborhood of Old Toronto, as the central district offers unparalleled access to the best attractions in the city and several metro stations within walking distance. If you're looking for a different taste of Toronto, stay in the trendy neighborhoods of West Queen West or King West Village, popular for their nightlife, arts, and cafe scenes. You can embrace Toronto's multicultural charms by staying in Chinatown, perhaps the city's best location for foodies.
