As well as seeing the latest art exhibition there is always plenty for families to do during a visit to NAE! All of our family events are free and everyone is welcome.
Kick start your weekend with creative family fun! Drop in, Saturdays throughout the season from 10.30am until 12.30pm for free creative family fun inspired by the exhibition. Every session is different, with activities ranging from creating collages to building 3D artworks – plus a free family film screening.
We offer free holiday workshops for those aged 7 - 16. Have a look at our latest workshops via our events page.
As well as our usual programme of fun-filled workshops and sessions for families at NAE, we also have a Family Resource Area and Activity Zone that can be explored at any time during opening hours.
We have a family-friendly Café with comfy sofas, a children's menu and activity area, as well as provide bottle warming and facilities for nappy changing. There is step-free access to the Café and Main Gallery, as well as lift access to the Mezzanine Gallery.
