NOW Build!

The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is the prime spot for a fun family day out this summer.

NOW Build! runs every day 10am - 5pm until 13 August. It is free and has lots of activities in the grounds of Modern One and Modern Two.

Hang out in our play houses, explore the grounds using our trail and build your own ice-cream sundae.

So drop-in, create, play and build BIG!


Daily Activities

Here's a flavour of what you can do at NOW Build! every day across the summer at Modern One and Modern Two. Activities at both sites are staffed by artist educators between 2pm and 4pm to help young builders.

Build-your-own sundae!

Budding builders need to keep up their energy. Take away picnic boxes can be bought from the cafés at Modern One and Modern Two. Children’s picnic boxes are £4.50 and include a sandwich, fruit, cake and juice whilst grown-ups are £9.50 and include a deli sandwich, fruit, cake and juice. Or bring your own packed lunch!

Still hungry? From the 3 July delicious ice-cream is available from the Bothy including raspberry ripple and cookie monster or build-your-own sundae
