Family Friendly Activities

We are a family friendly gallery, aiming to create a visitor experience that is engaging - whatever your age!

Each exhibition includes a ‘Things To Do’ area with activities such as a search for artworks in the exhibition using only photographs ofartwork details, through to creating poems or stories based on a particular piece. These activities are aimed at our younger visitors but - if they get stuck - adult participation is encouraged!

In this way we hope to promote the development of keen observational skills and imaginative thinking too.
