About the Museum

The Gardiner Museum is an inviting destination that inspires and connects people, art and ideas through clay, one of the world’s oldest art forms.

Year‐round the Museum mounts special exhibitions, events, lectures and clay classes to complement its permanent collection.

The Museum also features a bistro that serves delicious local fare prepared by à la Carte Kitchen Inc., and the Gardiner Shop, which specializes in artist‐designed, artist‐made merchandise.
