Spend a day at the Gallery exploring nature, inspired by the world of Harald Sohlberg: Painting Norway. Build a flower field, craft a fabric patch, explore our grounds and much more! Explore the sessions in detail below.
Don't forget to help yourself to a nature wheel from our Ticketing Desk in the Gallery – a fun guide for exploring nature as a family.
