Textile Museum of Canada

If you are interested in textiles, this is a 'must see'. The museum is located in downtown Toronto.
Teacher? check out the Teacher's open house in October.

The museum has an educational area set up.
The show we saw was focused on outer garments from many areas of the world. Blouses, jackets and coats were presented with the time period and cultural practices linked to the garment.
You will need to go to the museum to see the actual garments, however, I couldn't resist showing some of the ways the garments were decorated - including dying, weaving and embroidery.

There is a  second museum I wanted to see ... but we ran out of time
Bata Shoe Museum
