Gardiner Museum

When Toronto businessman and philanthropist George R. Gardiner began collecting ceramics in 1976, he was only interested in decorating his home. But soon his passion for pottery and porcelain grew as well as his collection and he co-founded the Gardiner Museum in 1984 with his wife, Helen. Today, the museum's collection has ballooned to include more than 4,000 pieces, encompassing everything from Japanese sake pots and Italian Renaissance maiolica plates, to Canadian contemporary ceramic sculptures.

Objects from the core collection share space in the museum with special exhibitions. The museum supplements its showings with lectures, special workshops, and clay classes for children and adults. Visitors can take home a souvenir from the Gardiner Shop, which sells Canadian ceramics as well as international jewelry, scarves, and glasswork, or stop-by for a lovely lunch at the third floor Terrace Room with stunning views overlooking the city, catered by à la Carte Kitchen Inc.
