Textile Museum of Canada

Incorporated in 1975 as the Canadian Museum of Carpets and Textiles, the TMC first presented its collection in a very modest room in Toronto's Mirvish Village. In 1989 it celebrated the opening of our new facility at 55 Centre Avenue. Now known as the Textile Museum of Canada, the TMC has gained international recognition for the quality and importance of its collection, the excellence of its exhibitions and programming. Visitors to the galleries can experience the traditions, skills and creative processes that make textile arts so engaging.

The Textile Museum has a permanent collection of more than 12,000 textiles from around the world. Covering 2,000 years of textile history, the collection includes fabrics, ceremonial cloths, garments, carpets, quilts and related artifacts.

The Textile Museum of Canada presents curated exhibitions of contemporary work and historic and ethnographic artifacts drawn from its own and others? collections. The museum also offers lectures, round-table discussions, workshops, music and dance performances, hands-on demonstrations, school programs and public tours.
