See, Make and Do at the Museum: Join us for our early openings at the Museum aimed at children who have autism and other needs, along with their families and carers, parents/carers must stay and siblings are also welcome . The Autism early morning openings normally take place on the second Saturday of every month.

Activities take place before the Museum opens to the general public and there will be a quiet room available too.

The children are able to see objects, do activities and make creations inspired by one of the Museum's galleries. 

A different gallery will be open at each early opening. 

These sessions are drop-in, there is no need to book.
