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.
Like many of you, we have been closely following the developments of COVID-19. The safety of our visitors, campers, staff, and volunteers is our top priority.
The Gardiner Museum is temporarily closed as of March 14, 2020. We have also cancelled all March Break Camps, clay classes, and special events scheduled to take place before June. Participants who have registered for these programs will be contacted directly and refunds will be issued.
We regret the inconvenience that this may cause, but are hopeful that these actions and the actions of our fellow cultural institutions will help maintain the health and safety of our communities. We will continue to take guidance from our public health officials regarding the duration of the closure and will post updates to our website and social media channels as they become available.
We are grateful for your support and thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to navigate this challenging time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our team will make every effort to respond in a timely fashion.
Sending best wishes to you and your community. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Gardiner soon.
