Relaxed, Sensory-Friendly Evening
A sensory-friendly evening for visitors of all ages and their families, friends and support workers.
Come along to the Museum after hours. Visitors with autism and other sensory or accessibility needs can enjoy a quieter, less crowded visit to the Museum. This is a chance to see all of our permanent galleries, and maybe discover something you've never noticed before!
While everyone is always welcome at the Museum, we acknowledge that sometimes the crowds and noise make visits harder for our neurodivergent visitors and those living with a disability. We will be altering some of the screens, lights and sounds around the Museum to make it a more sensory friendly experience, there will be a low-sensory area for activities and attendees can enjoy exclusive access to the whole Museum.
Staff and volunteers have undertaken Autism Charter Training, and in March 2018, the Museum was declared an Autism Friendly Venue by Autism SA.
