Explore the Gallery with the whānau
The Gallery is full of secret spots and discoveries waiting for you to uncover! Bring the tamariki and begin an adventure discovering artworks, get creative with intergenerational art-making together at free Whānau drop-ins, enjoy storytelling sessions, or set off around Gallery spaces with one of our free Gallery Games.
Be sure to check out the Gallery's Creative Learning Centre – an immersive, family-friendly space located on the mezzanine level.
When you’re ready for a break, take a wander through neighbouring Albert Park, or refuel in our café with snacks and meals available. If you prefer, bring your own food to enjoy in our covered amphitheatre.
