Textile Museum of Canada
One of a kind in Canada, the Textile Museum opened in 1975, features an international collection of quilts, garments, carpets and ceremonial objects. First shown in a small area in Mirvish Village, the collection is now located in a 25,000 square feet space. Exhibits include textile arts from such places as China, Japan, Africa, South East and Central Asia, South and Central America, Europe and the Pacific, as well as Canada and the U.S.
The Textile Museum is on the small side (2 hours is enough time to see everything) but their permanent collection and their exhibits are quite good. The displays cover a fascinating and beautiful array of textiles from across the globe.
The $10 fee seems a bit high, however.
