Tate St Ives is a family friendly gallery, with an interesting and varied calendar of exhibitions and displays, plus events and activities throughout the year. It's definitely worth checking what's on before you visit to find out what you can see and do with the kids.
There are several Family Trails to follow, which will help you all explore and investigate the artwork and buildings you see. Activity packs are available at reception, and are a great way to get more from your visit. You are welcome to explore at your own pace and even to stop and sit for a while as you enjoy the great variety of artwork, which often includes photography. If you want to know more, there are free guided tours of the gallery every day at 11:00 and 14:30.
If you fancy a day full of art, combined tickets are available, which also provide access to the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. A great opportunity to learn about an important 20th century artist, and to see some amazing sculptures in bronze, wood and stone.
There is a Tate Kids website that you may want to show your newly inspired budding Picassos after their visit! You can find it through the link.
