The Gardiner Museum is open seven days a week. Explore our permanent collection, discover special exhibitions, get hands-on with clay in our studios, dine, shop, and more. We look forward to welcoming you!
Enter a world at once familiar and uncanny. The exhibition hall has been transformed into an immersive reimagining of Montreal-based artist Karine Giboulo's home. Brought to life by over 500 miniature polymer clay figures, this is no ordinary house. The figures tell stories that reflect our most urgent social issues, from the pandemic and climate crisis to food insecurity and housing instability. Get tickets!
A new season of clay classes is open for registration! Sign up for stoneware, hand building, wheel throwing, and special exhibition courses. Winter is the perfect time to stay warm in the studio and learn a new skill. Register now!

Ceramic production in Canada’s North is unique to Kangiqliniq (Rankin Inlet). First introduced to this community through a government-run program in the 1960s and 70s, ceramics has experienced a resurgence over the past decades through the privately-run Matchbox Gallery.
Northern Visions illustrates how the artists of Rankin Inlet draw upon tradition to create new works that embody the attributes of the Inuit people: interconnectedness, resilience, strength, and creativity. This display highlights pieces from the Gardiner’s permanent collection and loans from a private collection, including works by Yvo Samgushak, Roger Aksadjuak, John Kurok, and Leo Napayok.
