The Gallery Of Modern Art
This is a general listing for the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA), located at South Bank. We support this general listing another review that focuses on the toddler friendly activities at GOMA.
The Gallery of Modern Art is situated in the same precinct as the Queensland Museum, State Library and Art Gallery and has a children’s section that generally offers free interactive activities and fun for Brisbane Kids.
Make Art and Culture a Priority
Home to not only some of the best art pieces from modern artists that together you can talk about and question it also houses the Children’s Art Centre – a place dedicated to encouraging hands-on artistic fun for little ones. In fact, GOMA and the Queensland Art Gallery (two separate galleries that exist under the one umbrella) have a strong focus on encouraging children’s artistic involvement and frequently have initiatives and commissioned exhibitions created with children in mind.
Exhibitions vary and it is advisable to go to their website to check out what is on for Brisbane Kids now or check our calendar above using the menu. The Gallery of Modern Art is one of those amazing creative spaces that change not only with its exhibitions but also with the age and interests of your child.
Is GOMA Child-Friendly?
GOMA generally has activities for kids that are free and the Gallery of Modern Art is well known for devoting space to a children’s section and playing host to some of the largest children’s Art Exhibitions in Australia.
The Gallery of Modern Art also has regular main exhibitions that can be child-friendly. Their exhibitions often come with a fee for entry and require a higher level of supervision than in the children’s gallery. What that looks like will depend on the activity on offer, some are far more interactive than others.
Is the Gallery of Modern Art free?
The Gallery of Modern Art is free to enter but sometimes the main exhibitions do cost money- we list the paid exhibitions on the Things to Do in Brisbane Calendar.
