In accordance with the announcement by the provincial government, the Gardiner Museum has closed temporarily, effective Monday November 23. While this news is difficult, 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!
In accordance with instructions from the provincial government, the Museum closed to the public on Monday November 28 and we have cancelled all clay classes. We regret the inconvenience this may cause, but are hopeful that these actions will help maintain the health and safety of our communities. We will automatically be crediting students with a refund for remaining sessions.
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.

Our annual 12 Trees fundraiser has evolved into New + Now, a celebration of national and international ceramics in support of our clay education and outreach programs, and special exhibitions throughout the year. As one of the world’s only museums dedicated to ceramics, the Gardiner is committed to championing clay and supporting up-and-coming as well as established artists working in the medium.
New + Now kicks off with an exclusive preview gala of our new International Ceramic Art Exposition featuring outstanding Canadian ceramics alongside cutting-edge works from top international gallerists, and the opening of David R. Harper: Zodiac, a spectacular museum-wide installation. View and purchase some of the world’s most extraordinary contemporary ceramic art, on display in Toronto for the first time.
