Nottingham Contemporary

Nottingham Contemporary is built on in a sandstone cliff over three levels. The Galleries, Study, Small Collections Room, and shop are easily accessible from the main entrance on Weekday Cross.

The Space and Cafe.Bar.Contemporary are below the galleries and can be accessed through the main entrance and via the stairs or lift, or by the stairs on the outside of the building which lead to the Cafe.Bar.Contemporary Terrace. Access to Cliff Road via Weekday Cross is also restored via the impressive external stairway.

To get a sense of how you will get around when you visit, browse our photos and maps of the building. Take part in an activity, event or self led visit while you are here, visit our Learning pages for more information.

31 Mar - 15 Apr 2012: Free Family Fun

31st March to 15th April 2012

This Easter drop in to see exhibitions for free and take part in free family activities. Explore the galleries with our fun Play and Learn kits and get  interactive with the art works by Thomas Demand and DAAR. Draw, explore, make, play and let your imagination run wild!

On Easter Friday and Sunday celebrate spring and make a miniature garden with The Nu-Urban Gardeners complete with model lambs and eggs, living plants and found objects. The friendly – and funny – gardeners have “grown” art with lots of people in London. Now they are coming home to Nottingham.

There will be different events happening each day during the school holidays, so there will be something new to do and plenty to keep children entertained this Easter – all for free. Take home a bright yellow balloon and meet our friendly zebra too.

Nottingham Contemporary is one of 20 Museums and Galleries around the country that has been put forward for the Kids in Museums Award 2012. We aim to make family visitors to Nottingham Contemporary as welcome as possible. There is always creative fun to be had here. More news about the award will be announced in May.

All events will take place between 11am and 3pm
