Family Sundays

Family Sundays

Every Sunday, 11 am to 3 pm

Ever wonder what to do with your family on a Sunday? Well look no further! Join us for a fun day of family-friendly activities at the Gardiner.

Family Sunday activities are included with your general admission, and youth 18 and under are always free.*

Family Sundays run from 11 am to 3 pm every Sunday, 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.

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. 

We look forward to seeing you here!

How many patterns can you think of? Come to Family Sunday and decorate your tile in your pattern of choice: diagonal, basket weave, brick. With the help of some tape, a little bit of paint, and a touch of inspiration, you can turn your tile into an intricate work of art. We'll be on the outdoor plaza.

As the rainy season approaches, we take the opportunity to turn it into one of our clay creations! Come to Family Sunday and make a cloud and a variation of rain drops with the help of a potter. We will provide the material and instructions to help you complete your mobile at home once your clay is dry. See you on the plaza!

Join us this Sunday for a Finding Dory-themed tile painting afternoon! Taking inspiration from the new Pixar movie's colorful animation, we will paint our favourite characters as we enjoy the summer weather on the plaza. See you at 11!

This Sunday, we will experiment with ink blowing on tiles. The results may be surprising! To look at a variation of this tecnique, visit our Japanese collection on the Museum's second floor where you will find a blue and white ink blown piece. Look carefully and you may come up with some great ideas.







*Children under 12 years of age must be accompanied by an adult to participate in Family Sunday activities, and each accompanying adult must purchase a general admission ticket. Children cannot be left unattended at any time.
