Tips for parents of babies

Please note that the workshop explores colours by hands-on experimentation. We advise you to wear clothes that can get dirty. It’s also a good idea to bring a change of clothes and a towel. There is a basin in the workshop space where you can wash up afterwards. There are also diaper changing stations, as well as protective jackets for adults.

We ask you not to eat, drink or breastfeed in the galleries or in the library. You’ll find peaceful spots for breastfeeding on the 1st floor and on the landings between the galleries. The staff will be happy to help you. There is a room next to the cloakroom reserved for breastfeeding only. The staff will open the door for you.

There’s a microwave oven in Kiasma Café that you can use to heat up baby food when you visit the café.
