Families at mima

mima is a great place to visit as a family. We have family activities and special events all year round, many of them free of charge. From our regular art trolley drop-in activities for all the family to our weekly mini mima club for 0-4 year olds and our creative workshops for older children, there is something for all the family.

If you come when there aren't any events planned, there is a family area and plenty of free activities and resources to pick up.

While you're at mima, why not sample the family friendly menu in our café, which includes a children's menu for just £3? There are activities for the children to do in the café, and we have plenty of high chairs for the little ones too.

"We made use of the family art trolley. My five year old asked if he could come every Saturday. Excellent idea to encourage young people/children into the gallery. Thanks again!"
Helen, local parent.
