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!
On Thursday November 24, experience the special exhibition "Karine Giboulo: Housewarming" alongside award-winning artist and educator Esther Maloney. Get inspired by the themes in the show to create your own artwork using clay and paper.
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!

What makes a house a home? Taking inspiration from the special exhibition Karine Giboulo: Housewarming, recreate a cherished household object or family heirloom in clay, then display it on our lobby trees for your fellow visitors to enjoy throughout the holiday season. Plan your visit today and help us bring this symbol of joy and creativity to life.
Looking for a special activity to do as a family? Every Sunday from 11 am – 3 pm, we’ll have guided workshops where kids can play with clay and add to our lobby installation.
