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!

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 18 | 11 AM – 3 PM
Storage jars with waisted sides were made and used during the Renaissance to store powders, ointments, cosmetics, herbs, and spices. Originally imported from the Middle East, these vessels became known as albarello. Join us this Sunday to create mini replicas of albarelli. Stop by the Maiolica collection and look at examples of these colorful and elegant ceramic forms.
