For Families


This summer, don't miss our fantastic family exhibition Michael Foreman: Painting with Rainbows.  We're also now open on Wednesday evenings until 8pm and on Sundays 11am - 4pm too so there's even more time to enjoy the Harris.

Take a look here for our special family events - from Little Hands On for the under fives, to Arty Explorers, Time Explorers, Hands On and lots more for ages 5-12, there's something for everybody to see and do! 

Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
