Family Activities


Every term time Tuesday, 10.30am - 3pm

Creative and imaginative play for young children in inspiring gallery spaces.

Spend time exploring creative resources, building, socialising, reading, getting imaginative and inspired in exciting spaces!

We are encouraging you and your under 5s to play and explore in the heart of the gallery and on Tiny Tuesdays there’s even more on offer. Find us in Adam Hall on the Ground floor.

Before you visit…


Tiny Tuesdays will be supported by Play Assistant, Tyne. She will join in with your play, signpost you to other fun places in the collections and suggest ways to engage in the gallery.

You can head to the café to enjoy your snacks and drinks. Please do not eat or drink in the galleries.

The image shows a playful and messy scene with a young child engaged in creative artwork or painting. The child is lying on the floor surrounded by various art supplies like paints, brushes, crayons, and toys scattered around them. The child appears to be wearing a white outfit that has paint or color smeared over it, suggesting they were fully immersed in the artistic process. The bright colors, toys, and disarray capture the uninhibited joy and freedom of childhood creativity and self-expression.
