George R. Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art Review

This collection of rare ceramics includes 17th-century English delftware and 18th-century yellow European porcelain; its pre-Columbian collection dates to Olmec and Maya times. Other galleries feature Japanese Kakiemon-style pottery and Chinese white-and-blue porcelain. If your visit coincides with lunchtime, hit the Gardiner Bistro for light dishes like West-Coast salmon with local greens. Free guided tours take place at 2 pm daily; or you can join a drop-in session in the clay studio (Wed. and Fri. 6–8 pm; Sun. 1–3 pm; C$15). Admission is half-price on Friday after 4 (or free on the third Friday of every month after 4).
