Children and Families

The Sainsbury Centre is a welcoming and accessible place for families to visit. We offer regular events for families and children all year round. Pre-school children can join in creative play with Mini-Studio while older children can enjoy a range of half- or whole-day practical workshops during half-terms and holidays. One Sunday a month, join us for Sunday Studio, an artist-led drop-in workshop for all the family to enjoy. Every Saturday, come and cook up a story in the gallery at Story Pot, our free storytelling workshop for families. 


Baby changing 

We have 3 baby changing facilities:

  • 2 in crescent wing toilets
  • 1 in unisex disabled toilets on ground floor

Buggies and pushchairs 

The building is buggy-friendly throughout. Lifts provide access the lower galleries and west mezzanine. 

Baby and toddler feeding 

We are a breastfeeding-friendly gallery and can provide a jug of hot water on request for parents to warm milk or baby food.
