We're thrilled to welcome you back safely to the Gardiner with new artworks and exhibitions, hands-on activities, studio classes, dining, shopping, and more. Plan your visit today!
We've reopened our doors with a series of new artworks and exhibitions on display, including Garniture Remix, an installation of vases and vessels from all areas of the collection. There's so much to discover this season!
Join us every Sunday from 11 am - 3 pm for Family Day clay and tile-painting activities, including with admission. Until October 31, Family Day will take place on our outdoor plaza, weather permitting. We can't wait to see you there!
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!
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.
Please note: Visitors will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors who buy advance tickets online are not guaranteed front-of-the-line entry and will need to be checked in at the Front Desk. Visitors will continue to be admitted and have the opportunity to participate after the 500 boxes have been distributed.
Visitors are invited to commemorate the closing of YOKO ONO: THE RIVERBED by participating in a new work created especially for the Gardiner. Yoko Ono’s CLEANING PIECE FOR GARDINER is a set of instructions that offers visitors the opportunity to take home parts of Line Piece and Mend Piece in small white boxes that will be provided by the Museum to the first 500 visitors (after which visitors will still be admitted into the exhibition and able to participate). They will also be given colourful materials to decorate the boxes, bringing vibrancy to the all-white space.
Since February, thousands of visitors have added to THE RIVERBED, using broken ceramic shards, tape, glue, string, nails, and other materials to leave their mark on the installation. CLEANING PIECE FOR GARDINER is a communal gesture that allows this creative energy to be preserved and shared beyond the exhibition’s run. For the first time, visitors will also be permitted to take photos in the space to document their experiences.
Join us in bringing Yoko Ono’s instructions to life and sharing the process with a global online audience.
