Textile Museum Of Canada, Toronto Reviews

  • It was smaller than I thought it'd be, 3 floors. But it was very fun and nice. Don't forget to check out the gift shop. That is it's own museum as well. They have a movie projector to show off some making of movies. We didn't stay for all of them but that right there is also worth it. Be careful, you may end up going the wrong direction and going through the displays backwards. They also have an interactive section to use olden spindles and machines

  • Saw a wonderful exhibit last week at the Museum and was thrilled by the execution and creativity the staff brought. Also everyone was incredibly friendly. I am excited to return to check out other shows.

  • 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.

  • The museum has two exhibitions on at the moment Itchiku Kubota and Ikat prints from Latin America. The museum is small but showcases some exquisite pieces of textile once you may not see even if you were to travel to the country of origin. They are rare pieces made by artisans and weavers using traditional techniques some of which is lost to us.

  • Welcome To The Textile Museum Of Canada I have heard about this Textile Museum, but Never Been There! I finally got my chance today! The museum had a Textile Exhibit called: Tied, Dyed and Woven Ikat Textiles from Latin America. The exhibit was very Interesting and if You like Textile Type Of Art, then this is the place to come and visit. I want to personally Zile Liepins for inviting ME to visit the Textile Museum Of Canada and Thank Caitlin for helping ME make my Youtube Video!

Actually I am back at the Textile Museum Of Canada because they had their Grand Opening for "The Kimono Of Itchiku Kubota" and the theme was called "Artistry In Silk". They had a fantastic and beautiful Art Exhibit featuring this wonderful artist that I named above and I was so Happy and Delighted to receive an Invitation To Come Back! The food was also good which featured Sushi and other Japanese Delights since the Artist was Japanese and this was a Very Nice Honor in his name. I want to personally Thank the Staff at the Textile Museum Of Canada for Not Only Inviting ME Back, but for putting on such a Beautiful Art Exhibit back on Wednesday, February 7, 2018. I want to also personally Thank Sarah who took the time out of her day to speak about some of the exhibits for my Youtube Channel as well!
