Family Day 2018

The AGO celebrates Family Day with colour filled fun.


The AGO is exploding with colour-full interactive fun! Put on your favourite colour and join us to celebrate COLOUR – with music, movement and activities for the whole family! Dance the day away at an all ages dance party, make paintings without paint, get popping in the famous bubble wrap room, play with light and shadow, make an emoji face mask, chill out with kid friendly films and end the day with a memory in front of the colourful selfie wall.

Family Day activities are free with general admission, and visitors can save $10 off the cost of a family pass when they purchase tickets online in advance. AGO members always receive free admission.
