It’s a rarity: a museum dedicated to the ceramic arts. There’s plenty to see here, from pre-Columbian artifacts to Canada’s most important collection of European porcelain, all housed within one of the city’s architectural gems. It’s clearly a collection curated with passion. Among the permanent 3,000-piece collection are a re-created 18th-century dessert table and a whimsical collection of commedia dell’arte figures. Special exhibitions are on display throughout the year. Museum staff provide erudite guided tours every day at 2pm (free with admission).
