Visit with children

The Gallery has much to offer visitors of all ages – and most of it is free.

Entry to see the Gallery’s permanent galleries and most temporary exhibitions is free. For paying exhibitions, children under five are admitted free and there are family discounts to our ticketed major exhibitions – the exhibition pages in What’s on give details.

There’s an extensive range of free activities for children from tots to teenagers, including in the school holidays. We also offer workshops during the holidays for various ages and monthly tours for tots – both extremely popular so book in advance (charges apply).

We’ve created free children’s trails to help young visitors engage with the art and ideas in our exhibitions. You can download these or pick up a copies at the Gallery’s information desk.

You can find details of all these at Gallery Kids, along with tips for introducing kids to art.

To help plan your visit, including information about food, baby-change facilities and the like, see Frequently asked questions.

Pop for kids

Visit our exhibition Pop to popism. Pick up the free children’s activity trail, look out for the special labels for kids, play pop twister in the Pop Play area – a creative and playful family space for visitors of all ages – and drop in to one of our artmaking activities
