Relaxed Opening – Sun 15 Apr 2018

Large building with pillars at the entrance with green lawn and blue sky

Date: Sunday 15 April 2018, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Venue: Yorkshire Museum

Our Relaxed Openings are designed for visitors who would prefer a quieter visit to our museum.

During the event, light and sound levels will be adjusted so it’s a less overwhelming environment. You’ll still be able to visit all the galleries, but there will be no dark areas and no sudden sounds.

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.

Please note that we are currently experiencing queues due to the new exhibition ‘Yorkshire’s Jurassic World’. We do not have a queue-jump system available. If you have any concerns please contact us ahead on 01904 687687 or speak to a member of our Visitor Experience Welcome Team during your visit.
