Founded in 1984 by George and Helen Gardiner, Canada’s largest ceramic museum is right across the street from the Royal Ontario Museum. Donations and acquisitions led to a sustained growing collection that began to attraction international collector interest. The nearly 3000 pieces exhibited at this museum cover many civilisations from around the world - Ancient Americas, Italian Renaissance, Oriental porcelain, European porcelain. Not all of the items are decorative; many of the pieces have been put to actual use in eating, drinking, prayer and ceremony. Check the museum website for current and upcoming exhibitions. You can also sign up for clay forming workshops.

Gardiner Museum, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review

  • Nice small museum located not far from the ROM. Went on a friday after 4pm and admission is 50% off 4-9 pm on fridays which is a bonus. Although small it takes time as lots of beautiful things to look at and read about. Was not crowed and was able to take our time at a relaxed pace.

  • Best 15$ spent on a museum. The tremendous amount of porcelain and ceramic collections, and all the knowledge shared makes this visit appealling for both ignorants and experts on pottery.

  • Canada's National ceramics museum. Three floors of very interesting and beautiful ceramics and porcelain that's not just plates and cups!

  • I saw ad for Free family event on Sunday, but when we get there, we were told adult has to buy ticket for $15 each, then the kids can join.... I don't think this is correct way to attract customer.

  • Valuable permanent collection, extraordinary architecture, well lit specious rooms, great staff. Pottery classes for kids and adults. Lectures on art history. Special events. Upscale restaurant...
