Artful, Fascinating, Amusing

I went to the Gardiner Museum this summer and it was really quite fun. There was ceramic everything-- cutlery, little figurines, art, sculptures etc from all over the ages and all over the world. There was cutlery from China, various figurines of dancing mice (?) and singing monkeys and a fat lazing purring cat teapot, and a whole collection on Italian figurines from opera or something and there were all types of ancient artefacts and sculptures and it was just all very interesting and pretty and amusing to look at. There was a really nice sculpture or something, it was too giant vases, placed side by side, so that the space between formed the forms of a boy and girl! At first I couldn't see it but when I did it was extremely exciting. In the basement, there were exhibitions of art done by visitors, and lots of them were all very masterful and great too. The gift shop was also full of --of course-- ceramics, very pretty and interesting ones too, just that they were a tad expensive, I treated that as a museum too and didn't buy anything but just looked.. The Gardiner museum was a very good experience, and I recommend it (though picture-taking wasn't allowed, something in which I was severely disappointed).

"No kitschy stuff here" among the "fun objects d'art, crafts and jewelry" at this ceramics museum shop, at the edge of Bloor-Yorkville and across the street from ROM; the selection of "dainty, yet strong and beautiful" gifts is perfect for the "hard-to-shop-for person" on your list.

Lovely museum. V varied, well laid out exhibits and one of the best museum eateries I've come across. Service really good our waiter was really friendly and welcoming. Service here is generally SO much better than in the UK!

Small but perfectly formed

The Gardiner is a niche museum focusing just on pottery /ceramics, but it does house some exquisite work, and if you like this sort of thing, you'll love the Gardiner. The building is easy to navigate, well lit, spotless and inviting, plus it shows of the pieces very well to boot.
My only reservation is that there isn't more of... more

What a Marvellous Gem
March 12, 2014

While I'm a regular visitor to it's much larger cousin across the street (the ROM), it's been close to 20 years since I last paid a visit to the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art. Shame on me for not going back sooner. What a marvellous institution situated in Toronto. The wonderfully displayed collections are augmented by an excellent array of... more
