Family Friendly Gallery Activities

There are lots of Family-friendly activities in the galleries including:

  • Kids Activity Bags - We have a newly re-designed bag this year. In fact they have been so popular that we are in short supply. Look for them again when you visit over March break! 

  • All new activity cards in the bag - with a snappy hole so you can hang it off your pant loop or backpack! There are fun new things to do while visiting the gallery and when you get home.

  • Drawing Stations – Make your mark and share stories in creative discovery zones found throughout the Gallery.

  • Kids Gallery -  Come visit the Kids Gallery at the AGO, a space created especially for children and you. Together you can experience art first-hand, learn and have fun. Enjoy our current exhibition, Pets & Me, with a fun interactive game, touchables and kids your age talking about art! You can draw your favorite pet and hang it up on our kids gallery wall, read a book or put on a costume and instagram your silly look!
