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

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

Join us for free drop-in LOOK-THINK-MAKE workshops each month to explore and unravel some of the ideas and processes found within the galleries.

Activity map

Families visiting the exhibitions can pick up a simple activity map to start investigations in the galleries, and follow up with creative ideas to try at home.
