A relaxed early opening of the Museum for families with additional sensory needs to experience the galleries in a quieter environment.
From 8.00am to 10.30am, our galleries will be open early for families with additional sensory needs. Select interactives will be turned off, noises and lights turned down, and a quiet room will be available for downtime.
As well as exploring the galleries, a selection of fun activities will be available for you to try.
This event is designed for children who would enjoy a quieter visit to the Museum, including children with autism spectrum conditions or other sensory processing differences.
This event is free and suitable for children aged 4-15. Siblings are welcome, but all those attending must pre-book a ticket. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
All visitors to this event will be sent a visual story by email in advance of their visit to provide an idea of what to expect on arrival.
Please note that the Museum opens to the general public at 10.30am.
