We will be opening our doors for a special afterhours session that allows people with sensory difficulties to enjoy our exhibits without the noise and crowds
Pre-booked arrivals will be welcomed in from 16:30, with last entry at 17:00. The session will continue until our extended closing time at 18:00.
How we’ll make the museum more comfortable:
The Museum lighting can be quite bright and has some stimulating areas. Our sensory map will warn of spaces with bright or dim lighting with red markings for any moving/flashing lights. We’ll turn down as much as we can as well as turning off as much effect lighting as possible (Some lighting is fixed, and cannot be adjusted, please contact us for any additional information)
Our site is accessible, however due to the age of the building and the layout of the tunnels there are some areas that are not suitable for electric wheelchairs and some buggies and scooters. We offer limited availability Buggy parking within our reception area.
