Family Day

Family Day

Every Sunday

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!

If you already visited our new exhibition, Beneath the Surface, you were probably impressed by the colorful textile panels exhibited along with gold and ceramics from Ancient Panama. These elaborate works consist of cloth layers inspired by flora, fauna, and different Kuna imagery. Join us this Sunday as we paint tiles in the “mola” style! Paint your favorite animals or plants using strips of bright colors.
