The Queen’s Gallery offers a great day out for children. Here are some ideas to help you plan your visit. The Queen's Gallery will open on 1 November with Castiglione: Lost Genius and Gifted: From the Royal Academy to The Queen.
Family activity bag
Pick up a family activity bag at the exhibition entrance.The bag is full of challenges and activities for all the family.
Strike a pose in Castiglione: Lost Genius to recreate some of the biblical stories or look for the animals in the drawings and prints to discover their hidden meaning. Visit Gifted: From the Royal Academy to The Queen and put together pieces of our Modern Art jigsaw and play the Magic Cube Challenge to find out more about abstract art.
Family Activity Bags are suitable for families with children aged 5 to 11.
The Millar Learning Room
Start or end your visit in the Millar Learning Room where you can find out about printing techniques, browse catalogues and books related to both exhibitions and frame and display your own artwork as a gift for The Queen. Tweet pictures of your artwork using #gifted.
Noah entering the Ark
What animals can you spot? Do you know why they are following Noah to the Ark?
A self-portrait is a picture, a sculpture or even a photograph of an artist made by the artist. Castiglione was inspired by the famous Dutch artist Rembrand and you can see self-portraits of both artists displayed here side by side.
This motorcycle looks very beautiful. Who do you think it was designed for?
Look out for the letters of the word ‘HOPE’, with an outline of a globe placed over them. What do you think it could mean?
Where are the animals?
Find drawings of animals in both exhibitions. They are all very different, but which one is your favourite and why?
