The Gardiner Museum is well worth visiting. It is devoted to artworks and practical objects, from all eras and around the world, that were fashioned out of clay. I particularly enjoyed the Japanese ceramics, and the display of European dinnerware from the eighteenth and nineteenth...More

I was surprised that they could dedicate a whole museum to pottery, but I was surprised that we really enjoy our visit! It is small but very nice!

If yes give it a try and find out what 'Majolicas' are. A very good collection of ceramics covering Britain, Italy and Latin America. We had time only for the collections in the first floor but we were satisfied with that. Most of exhibits are...More

One of those places that people question you about going to, but love it when they get there. It has been freshened up since my last visit several years ago and remains a great attraction, especially the second floor.

This museum is very small in comparison to the ROM (across the street) or the AGO (just couple of subway stops away). Yet, the exhibits are really interesting, tastefully selected and have great detail that you can really admire. Throughout the year, the museum hosts...More

Visited recently while in Toronto on holiday. We were taken for lunch and a trip round the museum, the food was excellent if a bit pricey. The museum was actually very interesting which was a bonus and quieter than the ROM, no bus parties of...More

Unless you really like ceramics, this museum is enjoyable for a quick spin - especially of the tea sets upstairs. Very nice staff throughout the museum, and very helpful, but this felt like a niche collection that didn't have as much popular appeal as the...More

At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination
for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip
and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to

I'm sorry I don't have these - maybe you could contact the museum itself. It was very well-curated
