The welcome staff and managers have all attended Autism Awareness training. They are understanding and happy to help.
Our sensory backpack for children includes a pair of ear defenders, a sensory ball, a sensory floor plan, a soft toy, a squishy toy, a stretchy noodle, a sensory egg timer, a notebook and pencil.
If you feel a sensory backpack for adults would be useful, please contact [email protected] with your ideas and suggestions.
Quiet sessions are available every second Sunday of the month from 10-11am and from 3pm until close. You can be sure of a friendly welcome and a relaxed experience. The volume of sound effects is turned down and lighting is turned up a little so that some areas are not as dark as usual. In the Tudor Hall, you can touch and explore some of our objects on the Touch and Feel table. Volunteers will be available to answer any questions you may have.
Coming soon: a visual story to help you plan your visit.
