Explore the Gallery with the whānau
The Gallery is full of stories and secret spots to ignite young imaginations! Bring the tamariki (children) and begin an adventure together discovering art, getting creative with art-making at free Whānau drop-ins or exploring the Gallery with one of our free guides for tamariki.
Make sure you check out the Gallery's Te Aka Matua | The Creative Learning Centre – a family friendly space with fun, hands-on activities that encourage tamariki and whānau to engage with art and develop their own creative voice.
Babies and toddlers can be bottle fed on seated areas in the North Atrium (next to Te Ata Matua | The Creative Learning Centre) or the main foyer. Please note that other food and drink is not permitted elsewhere in the Gallery, but can be enjoyed on our outdoors East Terrace, which is sheltered and has heating for rainy, cold days. You are welcome to store your food or drink in the Gallery’s cloakroom while visiting the Gallery’s exhibitions until you’re ready for a break. Refreshments are also available to purchase in the café.
