Toronto, Canada

The exposition was founded in 1984. The museum's collection is entirely devoted to ceramics and areas related to this craft. The basis was a private collection of ceramic products by the Gardiner spouses. Now in museum collections there are about 3 thousand exhibits. Here are collected samples of ceramics of ancient Indian tribes, the Renaissance, Japanese and Chinese porcelain, English dishes and much more.
