Relaxed sessions are an opportunity for visitors with autism, sensory sensitivities or disability to have a quieter Gallery experience, with fewer people and reduced noise.

Starring KAWS’s character BFF, KAWS: PLAYTIME is a rich sensory experience welcoming kids and families into BFF’s world. Young visitors are invited to nestle into cosy nooks, explore and play.

Made especially for KAWS: PLAYTIME, the BFF and Friends multimedia interactive gives visitors of all ages the chance to play with different features of BFF and create a video portrait to share with friends.

KAWS’s sculptures of his characters are filled with human feeling and emotion. For young visitors, the Make a Friend for BFF touchscreen interactive featuring BFF tells a tale about feelings and the importance of friends and asks children to draw a friend for BFF.

PLAYTIME continues when young visitors receive their own kit containing a pop-up surprise and a special set of alphabet stickers drawn by KAWS.
