The MAC is for everyone and when it comes to family fun, this is the place to be.
Our free to visit family room is a big hit with little kids (and big kids too). Situated on the ground floor, it’s open from 8.30am - 6pm seven days a week. A fun, vibrant space filled with carefully selected books and creative activities for little ones.
For visitors with young families, our facilities include:
- Award-winning Family Room
- Baby-changing facilities on the ground floor, complete with nappies and supplies
- Lockers in basement for bags and buggies
- Breastfeeding mothers always welcome
- Children's menus available in our Café Bar
Babe in Arms Policy
We are committed to providing the best possible customer service to everyone visiting the MAC so we've made the MAC as family friendly as possible. We offer shows, special events and workshops for children and families throughout the year. Our family activities are very reasonably priced, with many of them free or starting at £7.
We have a babe-in-arms policy which applies to children under one. This means that children under the age of one receive a complimentary ticket, though they will not be allocated a seat. This policy applies to children’s shows. It is not possible for us to admit children under three to shows that are not designed for a family audience, but we advise in our show content on age suitability and provide at a glance badges on our website.
We are one of the 750 organisations across the UK who have pledged to meet the Family Arts Standards, a UK-wide recognised quality-mark demonstrating excellence in family provision. Click the logo to find out more
