Gardiner Museum - Review

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

  • Small, well kept museum, beautiful porcelain & ceramics collections and interesting sculptures. Informative and polite tour guides. Good opportunities for special exhibitions and events. When you leave this place, you’ll be very inspired. Worth visiting for sure, especially for art lovers in general and ceramic art fans in particular. Parking could be challenging.

  • It’s not about the location, as much as it’s about the people. The energy of professionals having a purpose and tasks to accomplish makes a fundraiser a success. As always a sprint plan, schedules as well as teams being told what is expected differentiates an agile team from a not agile team. Successful fundraiser. The location is art friendly. There is a prayer room for Jews, and other religions. The place accommodates people from various backgrounds.

  • A truly unique museum where you can learn about the history of ceramics. Not sure how well known the upstairs restaurant is but food looks amazing. You can also book a wedding here. A nice quiet place to go if you are in the area and have about an hour to spare. Cute gift shop in front! P.s. can you please "like" this so I can become a Master Reviewer?

  • Small intimate museum with great collection of ceramics and wonderful exhibitions. Visited it several times and always had a great experience. If you are an art lover, it should be on your to do list.

  • The museum was very interesting, it had many interesting sculptures in it. It also had lots of different pieces of ceramics in it, Don't let the size of the building its located in fool you on how packed it is. The only reason I gave it a four star insted of a five is because I felt that the price of adult admission was a bit to expensive. Admission for people aged 18 and under was for free, which was nice though.
