Visiting with children

Whether you have tiny tots or teenagers, there's plenty to do with the family.

Children and young people under the age of 18 get free entry, making us a great choice for a family day out in Chichester.

Free family activity pack

Our free family activities encourage children to look more closely at our paintings – and have fun while doing so!

This autumn/winter our activity packs are crammed full of fun activities to complete while you explore the galleries, including portrait bingo, origami and a very special festive game of I-Spy. Find all of the Kate’s Bakes inspired mince pies hidden throughout the Gallery to win a free mince pie or chocolate lolly from Pallant House Gallery Café.

Available from the Welcome Desk when you arrive.
