A maximum of 25 children for the 6-8-years age group and 30 children for the 9-12-years age group will be allowed per session. Parents are requested to deliver their children to the Centre for Arts Education (CFAE) on level -1 of Zeitz MOCAA for registration. No children must be left unattended in the museum.
