Families

We welcome families, including children of all ages. Visit the Children’s Art Centre at GOMA, or sign up for a program for young visitors, and don’t forget to explore the rest of our exhibitions and displays.

Children 12 years and under should always be under direct supervision of a carer.

Please don’t touch the works of art, except where clearly invited to.

Bags and cloak room

We have cloak rooms at both entries to QAG and GOMA’s main entry. We’ll ask you to check bags bigger than 40cm x 15cm x 35cm, umbrellas and items our staff feel may not be safe for other visitors or works of art inside the Gallery.

You can keep bags containing care needs for yourself or anyone in your care, including bags containing items for a medical condition or first aid supplies, baby carriers being used to carry a child, or baby bags securely and unobtrusively attached to a pram or carried by the carer’s side.

Feeding

Breastfeeding and infant bottle-feeding are welcome anywhere in the Gallery, or you can use the parents’ rooms at QAG and GOMA. Please use the parents’ rooms to mix infant formula. Food and drinks for older children and adults are not allowed in the Gallery, and we ask you to please keep water bottles in a bag.

Parents' rooms

There are two parents’ rooms at QAG, one near the Stanley Place entrance and one near the Pelican Lounge, both on the Watermall level. There is one parents’ room at GOMA, in the Cinema Foyer. Please ask our staff for directions.

Prams and accessibility

Strollers are welcome, and all areas of QAG and GOMA are accessible by lift or ramp.
