Families, kids and youth

Kunstsilo is built for the future – that's why we focus on children and youth. Here are our offerings:

What's on

Practical information


Kunstsilo baby

Stay-at-home with a baby? We offer various programs and events designed to make this time extra special for you and your child. Come alone or with a group and let your baby safely explore the world in our facilities.

Kunstsilo Baby

Kunstsilo BABY is a program designed for our very youngest visitors and their parents. It primarily serves as a social gathering space where both children and adults can meet like-minded individuals, but it also aims to ensure quality time between parent and child. Starting after the summer of 2024, our regular program will offer useful courses, artistic, and sensory experiences. The content is designed for you to explore at your own pace.

Safe Meeting Place

Kunstsilo provides a safe meeting place in spectacular surroundings. Every Tuesday, anyone can come for a pleasant gathering in a dedicated area in the Multisalen. After the summer, the Tuesday meetings will move to the Brasserie, where we will lay out mats on the floor and distribute free samples.

Kunstsilo junior

Kunstsilo JUNIOR is our program for children aged 3-9 and 10-12 years. We differentiate between experiences for the whole family and opportunities for children to explore Kunstsilo on their own within safe boundaries.

On weekends and during holidays, our family hosts will greet families at the entrance in the Silo hall and ensure you receive helpful information. On other days, you can contact us at Guest Services. We facilitate children exploring art on their own terms, with many free activities throughout the museum. Play and be curious together!

Do you perhaps have some budding teenagers at home? At Kunstsilo, children over 10 years old can safely explore on their own, but they remain under the responsibility of their guardians.

Get an activity booklet or download our AR app to experience Kunstsilo and the exhibitions together. Both children and adults can freely express themselves in the workshop in the Multi hall, so keep an eye on our Family Workshops and other events here.

Gutt på utstilling


Are you over 13 and need a place to hang out with your friends? At Kunstsilo, youth have their own room, just for you – and it's completely free!

All under 18 enjoy free entry to Kunstsilo.

Every Wednesday to Friday from 3 PM to 9 PM, the Multi Hall is exclusively for youth. Here, you can just hang out with friends, relax, create something, do homework – it's entirely up to you. We have dedicated youth staff who are there for you.

Did we mention there's free WiFi and power outlets?

Make yourselves at home. This fall, we'll be introducing more offerings for young people. Stay tuned here to see what's coming up for you.
