Like many of you, we have been closely following the developments of COVID-19. The Gardiner Museum is closed temporarily as of March 14, 2020.
We will continue to take guidance from our public health officials regarding the duration of the closure and will post updates to our website and social media channels as they become available. We are grateful for your support and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to navigate this challenging time. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gardiner soon.
Our spring sessional classes and workshops scheduled for April and May have been cancelled. Refunds will be issued automatically.
The Gardiner Museum is among the few museums in the world focused on ceramics, and is one of the most important specialty museums internationally.

Journey around the world with some of Toronto’s favourite designers! Featuring twelve one-of-a-kind decorated trees inspired by twelve different countries.
This year’s Christmas tree theme is “A Child’s Christmas”, celebrating Christmas traditions and festivals of light from all around the world. To kick off this yearly Toronto tradition, the Museum will hold its annual Twelve Trees of Christmas Gala on November 15. After being exhibited at the Gardiner, the trees go to charities, chosen by the generous individuals and corporations who purchased them, to help spread the spirit of the season throughout Toronto.
