Now that we are deeply into fall and edging closer to winter, it’s time to move activities indoors – and what better place to escape the chill than the AGO? Every Sunday from 1-4 p.m. in November, December and January we’ll be playing and creating all over the Gallery!

In November, inspired by our latest exhibition Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures, Family Sundays will be devoted to exploring the wonder and awe of all things teeny-tiny. Kids and families can make miniature “museums in a box”, create itsy-bitsy objects like handmade beads, dig into the sensory sand box and more.

The fun gets astronomical in December and January when kids can explore the mystery and magic of the night skies, inspired by Mystical Landscapes: Masterpieces from Monet, Van Gogh and more. Little ones can create their own galaxy of cosmic pets, extraterrestrials, spaceships and undiscovered planets.

Families can also get interactive with a Pop-Up Planetarium and discover the awe-inspiring magic of the solar system. The Pop-Up Planetarium is presented in partnership by the University of Toronto from December 26, 2016 – January 8, 2017, 11:00 am – 3:00 p.m. daily.
