A Quiet Hour for Autism Awareness Week: postponed

Autism Awareness Week is coming up and we’ll be taking part with a special opportunity for visitors, for whom new places and unfamiliar noises can be overwhelming, to appreciate the quiet and soothing parts of our buildings, away from noise and crowds. Our Quiet Hour will run before the museum and chapel are open to the public and it will be free to drop in during that time. We’ll have a special sensory map of the space available, indicating high and low sensory areas, as well as a sensory bag for those who might enjoy it. Join us and help to spread awareness and increase acceptance for autistic people and their families! Free entry.
