Gardiner Museum to Undergo Significant Transformation

An extensive transformation is set to begin Summer 2024 at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto. The museum is planning a “full-scale reimagining” of its ground floor which includes a new lobby and reception area, retail store, a fully equipped makerspace, a community engagement centre, and an Indigenous collections gallery; the most significant and exciting new dedicated space showcasing new exhibits in Canadian and Indigenous stories through ceramics.

This transformation has become possible with the generous donation from The Radlett Foundation in honour of the late William B.G. Humphries, a great collector of ceramics and supporter of the Indigenous community through the arts. Montgomery Sisam Architects is honoured to be leading the design alongside Andrew Jones Design. We are committed to making this new 8,952 sq.ft. space a place where visitors can experience, learn, acknowledge, and absorb the history behind the pieces on display.
