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!

"Every block of stone has a statue inside of it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.” This Sunday, we'll apply that to clay. Join us as we experiment with tile relief. With the help of a potter, turn a block of clay into an animal that will look as if it's surfacing out of the tile.
