Guide and Assistance Dogs are welcome in all gallery spaces.

Visitors to the Gallery who are sensitive to sound can borrow a pair of earmuffs during their visit. Simply ask a staff member or visit the front desk to borrow a pair. Please ensure you return them when you are finished.
You can find large print text versions of the exhibition wall labels, when available, in most gallery spaces or at the front desk. Digital copies will be on the exhibition-related tab on our website.
Non-gendered toilets are on the ground floor of the Len Lye Centre. One toilet is wheelchair accessible and has baby changing facilities. Please note, the door on the wheelchair accessible toilet pulls to open.
For visitors who experience sensitivity to high levels of noise, light, and smells, Sensory Maps have been developed to help indicate potential areas of high or low sensory activity.
This map is updated regularly to reflect our change of exhibitions.
Sensory Map Summer 2020
The gallery regularly exhibits kinetic sculptures, which can have high noise levels or flashing reflected light.
We understand that not everyone experiences art in the same way. This short video is designed to indicate the types of artworks you may experience on your visit and is intended to be watched prior to your visit. The video footage shows the individual parts of the kinetic sculpture in motion – especially when the sculpture is performing at its fastest and loudest.
The aim is to provide information for our visitors who interpret sound, light and motion in their own way, and to give an idea of what you can expect to see and encounter on a visit to the gallery
Please note, this video is for reference only, the exact work may not be on display at the time of your visit.
Visiting with babies and infants
Breastfeeding and infant bottle feeding are welcome in the Gallery.
The Todd Energy Learning Centre can offer a quiet space, and a place to mix infant formula, when it is available - please talk to the Gallery staff if you need assistance.
Seating is readily available in most gallery spaces, with a mix of benches and lightweight portable stools. Ask a staff member if you would like a stool - they can be carried around the Gallery with you.
Food and drink is not permitted in any of the gallery spaces, but a water fountain is located near the toilets on the Ground floor. Food and drink is allowed in the Todd Energy Learning Centre.
There is free Wi-Fi available throughout the Gallery, though in some places wi-fi signal can be compromised by the artworks or the architecture.
