Art Baby

Experience a tour of the MCA customised to your unique interests with your little one.

Tour the MCA with your little one! Art Baby tours are perfect for parents with babies under 12 months old. This unique tour is divided into two sections: first, 45-minute gallery tour which invites grown-ups to experience exhibition MCA Collection: Perspectives on Place with their little ones. Afterwards, the mini art lovers will enjoy a 30-minute tummy-time session on our handmade multi-sensory art blanket.

The gallery tour provides the opportunity for parents and carers to delve into the themes and ideas of current exhibitions, while allowing plenty of time to stop, chat, feed and cuddle your baby. This is followed by a floor session all about the little people, who will delight in an incredible multi-sensory art blanket, by artists Liam Benson and Katy Plummer.

All babies must be under 12 months of age. 

Individual and Group tickets available. Group bookings are for a maximum of 10 adults. Limited availability, bookings are essential.
