Autism-friendly afternoon, PRESS HERE FOR LINKS

World Museum Friday 15 July, 2.30 - 4.45pm

We welcome children and adults with autism in our museums and galleries. Staff are piloting a series of sessions which are aimed at supporting the needs of people with autism.

Autism TogetherWe are currently working with Autism Together to develop skills to make our venues more autism-friendly. We have quiet areas in each venue. We will evaluate our events and we welcome feedback from visitors who attend so that we can develop and improve this service. Feedback forms will be available.

The offer is free but a session or event needs to be booked in advance so that we can make sure that we can accommodate you and avoid activities becoming crowded.

Please be aware that for everyone’s safety we have a fire alarm system in place in all our museums and galleries. In the event of the alarm going off there will unavoidably be a loud noise. Staff will let you know where to go to feel safe.
How to book

To reserve a place on any of the sessions listed below please complete a booking enquiry form. We will confirm whether there is a place for you or let you know if all places are booked.

Visiting us at other times

Visitors with autism are welcome in our museums and galleries at all times but sometimes the museums and galleries can be noisy. Quieter times include:

2.30pm - 5pm on weekdays during school term times. This is because the venues become quieter after school groups have left.
10am - 11.30am on Sunday mornings.

You may wish to avoid times when museums and galleries can be particularly crowded and noisy. These times include:

school holidays
bank holidays
when big events are happening in the city centre or at a particular museum or gallery.

Thanks Edd. Excellent information for those who it concerns.

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.
