  • Royal-Ontario Museum
    The Royal Ontario Museum is among the world’s leading museums of natural history and world cultures. By combining universal cultures and natural history into one museum, the ROM aims to engage its audiences from across the globe in the relationship between nature and humanity. This fundamental link is explored through the museum's many collections and programs, offering a wide breadth of experience in both areas. 2014 also marks 100 years since the ROM's momentous opening, and the museum is planning a year-long anniversary celebration of both its legacy and its potential going forward. The ROM will kick off another century of lively, relevant content and programming to build a community among future generations of visitors who pass through its halls.

  • Gardiner Museum
    When George Gardiner began collecting ceramics in 1976, he was only interested in decorating his home. But soon his passion for pottery and porcelain grew, and, rather than build a second home entirely from teapots, he co-founded the Gardiner Museum in 1984 with his wife, Helen. Today, the museum's collection has ballooned to include more than 3,000 pieces, encompassing everything from Japanese sake pots and Canadian ceramic sculptures to Italian Renaissance maiolica plates. Objects from the core collection share space in the museum with special exhibitions. One of these is the annual 12 Trees of Christmas, a display of holiday trees. The museum supplements its showings with events such as lectures and ceramics-inspired meals, as well as clay classes for budding adult and child ceramicists. Visitors can even take home pieces from the Gardiner Shop, which sells Canadian ceramics, as well as international jewelry, scarves, and glasswork.
