Art Baby

“My baby LOVES this. He is active, wide-eyed, bouncy and afterwards he sleeps! Thank you.”

Creative journeys start here. Sensory play in the beautiful setting of the gallery designed especially for babies and their grown ups. Come and enjoy some special time together: mums, dads, grandparents and carers are all welcome.
No booking necessary, just drop in any time between 10am and 3pm and stay for as little or as long as you like.
