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!
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!

Making a planned gift to the Gardiner Museum ensures that future generations will enjoy the beauty and inspiration that ceramics bring into our lives.
The Gardiner Museum was founded through the generosity of George and Helen Gardiner, whose support for the Museum was sustained through planned gifts. Thanks to the generosity of donors who want to remain connected to the Gardiner and invest in its development, the Museum has continued to grow and evolve to serve its community.
Planned gifts are lasting and meaningful contributions that support the Gardiner’s permanent collection, exhibitions, and educational programs. If you’d like to explore making a gift to the Gardiner that exceeds $25,000, you can choose to establish a Named Endowment Fund, to be recognized in perpetuity for your generosity.
Your planned gift to the Gardiner can take many forms:
How to Make a Planned Gift
The Gardiner team is happy to discuss your estate plans, but encourages anyone considering a planned gift to consult with their personal financial and legal advisors before including the Museum in their will. The Gardiner asks that all donors who have made a planned gift complete a pledge form, available upon request, as a record of their commitment.
If you already have a will, it’s not too late to add a bequest. For a small legal fee, you can add a codicil or amendment to your existing will. Again, we advise you to contact your lawyer or financial advisor or more information.
Give a Planned Gift
If you’re interested in discussing a planned gift, please contact Miranda Disney, Chief Development Officer, 416.408.5051
Please note the Gardiner Museum is not engaged in rendering legal or tax advisory service. Advice from legal and tax counsel should be sought when considering these types of gifts.
