We welcome children and their families to enjoy the arts and have fun trying new creative experiences.

If you cannot come in person,  you can still attend online events, explore digital resources and follow our blog, wherever you are.

When open, we would regularly host family-friendly tours, events and creative workshops to encourage open-ended experimentation and introduce creative skills and techniques.

LOOK-THINK-MAKE workshops for families would usually happen on the first Sunday of each month. These creative and fun sessions explore and unravel some ideas found within the galleries.  PLAY CIRCLE was a monthly session where little ones can explore the world around them through movement, music, words and play. Both LOOK-THINK-MAKE and PLAY CIRCLE can be enjoyed online using the links below.

We adhere to the Family Arts Standards developed by The Family Arts Campaign and the Family & Childcare Trust, and we are a supporter of the Kids in Museums Manifesto (see links below).
