On Tuesdays it's free for students, which helped me go, however I wouldn't go again. Nothing special, but it was really cool to see how obsessed the royals were with porcelain. I found the trees more interest though. But overall lovely.

Nice small museum. Was there for a design exhibit about Scandinavian influence. Apart from special exhibits, you have to like porcelain otherwise you don't want to go there!

We had a couple of hours to fill so my daughter suggested going to the Gardiner Museum. I'm not particularly interested in ceramics, porcelain or pottery, but we found it to be very interesting and worthwhile. They have a great collection covering most periods of...More

We bought a gift certificate to the Gardiner restaurant at a silent auction. We had heard great things about it and we were supporting a charity as well. The food was extremely average and as such over priced. The service was very good, and the...More

Sometimes the special exhibits are not very good but I found this one particularly interesting. It deals with the Scandinavian influence in Canada. It covers many mediums. Who knew how much we were influenced. Of course the rest of the museum is worth a visit...More

We booked a clay class as part of team building for our office retreat. We had some instruction but most was left to our imagination and creativity. We also enjoyed some of the exhibits on the way in and the way out. Beautiful spot.

The museum has a great collection of ceramics. I was particularly interested in the maiolica. There was also an impressive collection of commedia dell'arte figurines. A great morning.

Downtown
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
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

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