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 for 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 our friendly front desk staff 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!
UPCOMING FAMILY DAYS:
SUNDAY OCTOBER 4, 2015 | 11 AM – 4 PM
It is time to welcome the fall, and what a better way to do this than by crafting some fall-themed decoration. Come to Family Day this Sunday and make all sorts of leaves out of clay. Remember to pierce your leaves; there are many ways in which you can display your amazing artwork once it dries.
