About July’s Event

Opening times: 3:00 – 4.30pm

“We will be turning off speakers and screens to welcome those with autism or additional sensory requirements to enjoy the Museum in a relaxed environment. 

Visitors can explore the Museum with gallery sound levels at a minimum and screens turned off from 3pm to 4.30pm. Please note that after this time alarms may sound near the reception desk as we prepare the Museum for closing and a bell is rung at 4:50pm.

Ear defenders, visual guides and twiddlemuffs are available from the Museum’s reception free of charge.

You can find out more about our autism friendly resources by visiting our Access page.”
