Drop-in event Families & children

Creature Feature Play Area

Rooms 20-21 at Modern One will be closed from Monday 18 to Wednesday 20 October (inclusive) to allow us to re-hang artworks.

  • 26 Jun 2021-25 October 2021, daily 10am-5pm


Come along to our free, movie-themed adventureland. Inspired by the fantastical creations in our exhibition Ray Harryhausen: Titan of Cinema, our play area is open every day and is FREE! Join us for a play among flying saucers and the mighty Cyclops, slide down a dragon's tail, clamber across a rope bridge and peek into movie cameras to see beasts in the Gallery.

The play area will close if it has been raining and the ground is wet. This is to protect the Landform and reduce the likelihood of visitors slipping.

This event has been funded by Museums Galleries Scotland as part of the Scottish Government’s Get into Summer programme, supporting opportunities for children and young people to socialise, play and reconnect this summer.
