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. It houses approximately 4,000 objects, including European porcelain, ceramics from the Ancient Americas, Chinese porcelain, Japanese porcelain, and contemporary ceramics.

Forging New Paths is an exhibit of ceramic narratives created by children and youth ages 8 to 17 who share in their personal experience of sexual abuse. These young artists show great courage and compassion towards one another and to their peers globally who, like them, have broken the silence that often shrouds sexual exploitation
It is not a single footstep that makes a path. A journey that is shared is likely to make it more accessible for others to make the travel less burdensome. This is the making of trailblazers; children and youth who are willing to share their personal experiences in order to make it easier for others who will ultimately come after them.
