Museum in Yorkville & the Annex

Opposite the Royal Ontario Museum, the Gardiner Museum was founded by philanthropists to house their ceramics. Spread over three floors, collections cover several millennia; various rooms focus on 17th- and 18th-century English tavern ware, Italian Renaissance majolica, ancient American earthenware and blue-and-white Chinese porcelain. There are free guided tours daily at 2pm.
