We have lots of activities to ensure you and your family get the most out of your visit!
We provide free activity sheets, adventure backpacks and creative glass workshops so there is always something fun to do. Our new galleries are there to be explored and friendly staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
We are perfectly positioned for a fun day out with the family, a short walk from both the coast and the city centre. There’s plenty to do nearby including The Riverside Sculpture Trail, St Peter’s Church, Roker Beach and Marina, Roker Park outdoor play area and Monkwearmouth Station Museum.
My practice is interdisciplinary combining drawing, sculpture and film.
