The Textile Museum of Canada (TMC) is the only museum in Canada that explores ideas and builds cultural understanding through the universally relevant media of textiles. Located in the heart of downtown Toronto, the Museum’s permanent collection spans nearly 2,000 years and consists of more than 13,000 artifacts. A leader in the digitization of collections and interactive environments, the TMC has been recognized the world over for innovation in the development of landmark educational, research and creative initiatives. The Textile Museum of Canada is a non-profit cultural and educational institution that focuses on the exhibition, collection, conservation, research and dissemination of the materials and values of everyday life, including archaeological, traditional, innovative and experimental methods and practices.

Thoughts About Art and Community

The Textile Museum of Canada strives to provide access to our resources through programming at the Museum and offsite. We work collaboratively with community partners to develop workshops and other forms of engagement that meet the needs and interests of their constituents.


The Textile Museum of Canada presents rotating exhibitions, changed throughout the year. Exhibitions draw from the Museum's collection and present the work of local, national and international contemporary artists. The Museum also hosts touring exhibitions and guest curators through various partnerships and collaborations. We also offer a robust schedule of public programming, including school programs, group tours, workshops, lectures, and outreach programs in the community.
