There is seating provided around the museum, and a quiet space will be available should you need it. Our trained guides will be happy to provide guidance during your visit, or please contact us ahead should you have any questions.

For more information about accessibility, please visit our Access page here.

The event is free for visitors with autism, dementia, visual impairments or similar issues. Carers and children under 16 will also be admitted for free. Accompanying members of a group will be admitted for £4, and standard admission is £7.50. There is no need to book ahead.
