Your kids are safe with us

My Gallery allows your children to have their own personal virtual galleries by sending us their work or choosing works from the Tate Kids Collection – a database of 500 images from our online collection. Kids are then able to give each work a one to five star rating.

All content on My Gallery and the entire Tate Kids site is pre-moderated – checked before it goes live. This is to ensure that it suitable for all ages.

We also advise users choose a nickname, instead of their real names and keep their personal details as private as possible to keep them safe on line.

To find out more please see our Tate Kids Online Safety Guide, Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions, all written so your children can easily understand them.
