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.
