Free with Admission
Ever wonder what to do with your family on a Sunday? Well look no further! Join our mascots Arabella, Ting, Clayton and Nicco, and bring the whole family to the Gardiner to family-friendly activities — free with admission! Kids under 12 are always free (with the accompaniment of an adult).
Most activities take place in the lobby, but if you don’t see us when you come in, just ask one of our friendly volunteers where they are taking place.
Family Days run from 11 am to 4 pm with activities for children to do on their own or with an adult. Make sure you also check out our discovery boxes, do a scavenger hunt and take some colouring sheets home with you.
We look forward to seeing you here!

Enjoy today at the Gardiner Museum with your grandparents in celebration of National Grandparent’s Day. It is the time to celebrate those people who are always there with a hug, a cookie, or shows us how special you are. In return, why not create something with them or create something for them using clay. Grandparents always love to receive homemade gifts!

There are all kinds of pets out there and we are certain that your pet would want you to cherish their memory. Afterwards, why not explore our galleries to see which animals we have cherished for many years.

Come to the Gardiner Museum and paint a tile to give to your friendly neighbours, because that is what Good Neighbour’s Day is all about. Take a moment to reflect what makes a friendly neighbour, whether it is a simple helping hand or a gentle smile to show you care, and then capture it on a tile. Giving them your masterpiece is always a good thing for your neighbour.
