The Gardiner Museum is open seven days a week! Explore our permanent collection, discover special exhibitions, and get hands-on with clay in our studios. We look forward to welcoming you.
Discover an installation of works by American artist Sharif Bey on now in our lobby. Bey's practice is influenced by African and Afro-diasporic aesthetic traditions, as well as ancient Andean ceramics and contemporary popular culture.
Summer will be here before you know it! Don't wait to sign up for the Gardiner's popular summer camps. New this year, all our week-long sessions are full-day multimedia camps, so kids can draw, paint, sculpt, and more.
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!
Help us continue to offer innovative and engaging exhibitions, programs, and community projects in person and online, as well as plan for the future. Please consider making a donation today.

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.
Tickets for our annual fundraising gala sell out each year!
