Free family activities at BALTIC

1. Meet & Make

Every Sunday join in with Meet & Make, BALTIC's free drop-in activity with a BALTIC artist. Try a new creative activity inspired by BALTIC's current season of exhibitions. There's no need to book, just turn up and get stuck in. Recommended for ages 0-13.

Every Sunday 14.00-16.00, FREE

2. BALTIC's Sensory Room

Chill out in BALTIC's pop-up sensory room in Quay, Level 2, for a quiet space to play and explore sensory toys, projections, materials and a sensory wall (which is just outside the sensory room). Suitable for ages 0-5, but all ages are welcome.

Open daily 10.00-18.00, FREE

3. Family Quest

Spend some creative time with BALTIC Crew to find out more about contemporary art in an informal and imaginative way. Take part in a mini tour with your family, play games and enjoy fun creative activities all linked to BALTIC's current exhibitions. For children aged 13 and under with their families.

Saturdays at 11.30, FREE

4. Enjoy the views

Play eye-spy from BALTIC's Level 5 viewing box, looking out across unique views of Newcastle and Gateshead. Challenge yourself to count the bridges crossing the Tyne and spot Grey's Monument in the distance. Can you spot anything festive from here? Ask a member of BALTIC Crew if you get stuck.

5. Explore the building

Climb the 203 stairs to the top of the building and find the hidden Space Invader in the stairwell. Explore BALTIC's current exhibitions and then ride the glass lifts back down the building. Will you be lucky enough to see snow?
