In accordance with the announcement by the provincial government, the Gardiner Museum has closed temporarily. The health and safety of our visitors, staff, and the wider community remains our top priority. We'll continue to provide you with engaging digital content to keep us connected while the galleries are closed.
During our temporary closure, we're posting exhibitions and selections from our collection online. Discover Inuit ceramics, Chinese and Japanese porcelain, pottery from the Ancient Americas, and more!
On Thursday May 27 at 1 pm, Chief Curator Sequoia Miller will be joined by Vancouver-based artist Gailan Ngan to discuss three of her artworks in connection to the theme “Materiality.” Ngan is known for her experimental and innovative sculptures, often arranged in playful vignettes. Register now!
Every object in our permanent collection can be accessed through our eMuseum portal. Learn about individual collecting areas, like Italian Maiolica or Modern and Contemporary Ceramics, or search the full collection by keyword. You'll be amazed by what you discover!
With the Museum closed temporarily, we need your support to continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation to help us build community with clay.

The Gardiner kicked off the holiday season with a sold-out 12 Trees Gala, presented by Nordstrom. Patrons were treated to a vibrant evening filled with art, gourmet delicacies, entertainment, and more—all inspired by light, a symbol of hope that we can all share this holiday season.
We extend our deepest thanks to everyone who joined us, as well as to the many sponsors and supporters who helped make our most important fundraiser of the year such a success! This year’s Gala raised a record $120,000 in support of the Gardiner’s education and outreach programs.
Check out the Facebook album for photos from the Gala.
