This Labour Day weekend, the Gardiner Museum is offering free admission for all the exhibits as well as family activities.

Some of these include clay making and chalk drawing on the outdoor plaza, and guests can take a free art kit with clay, sculpting tools, and colouring pages featuring objects from the collection.

“Visitors can explore the permanent collection, including pottery representing 47 cultures from the modern day geographical areas of the American Southwest, Mexico, and Central and South America; a world-renowned collection of porcelain from Europe, China, and Japan; and contemporary ceramics by Canadian and international artists,” the release says.

Visitors can also access the Museum’s temporary exhibitions including Fable, a installation of clay and stained glass creatures by Toronto-based artist Nurielle Stern that spans the Gardiner’s stairwell; and the major special exhibition RAW, which features four artists “who are pushing boundaries with raw clay.”

Visitors are reminded to wear face masks and coverings when indoors and to maintain physical distancing.

The Gardiner Museum is located at 111 Queens Park.

It will be open with free admission from 10 am to 5 pm on the following days:

  • Saturday, September 5
