The Gardiner Museum is Canada’s national ceramics museum, and one of the world’s great specialty museums.

We are committed to making a contribution to the medium we celebrate, as well as the community we serve. We strive to be an inviting destination that inspires and connects people, art, and ideas through clay.

If you are planning to visit the Gardiner, please look at our calendar of events to make the most of your time here. Take in our exhibitions as well as our permanent collection galleries. Enjoy a delicious lunch at the restaurant, or stop by the Gardiner Shop, recognized as one of the best museum shops in Toronto.

All of our exhibitions, programs, and events are detailed on our website, and you can view our growing permanent collection online. For a deeper connection with clay, plan to participate in one of our drop-in clay classes or register for a hands-on clay class with a professional potter.

Come see us today.
