Relaxed Opening at Wiltshire Museum – cancelled
29th March 2020 – 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Relaxed opening for children and adults on the autism spectrum with pro-active welcome to help give confidence.
The online visual story is based around photographs of the museum to help prepare for a visit. The lecture hall on the first floor (accessible by stairs or lift) is available as a quiet space for anyone who needs to take some time out, with some quiet paper-based activities.
All videos and the touch table are turned down to a low volume. In addition, there are lots of opportunities to touch objects and do some hands on activities in the galleries as well as a children’s trail. For those who find unsolicited social interaction really difficult a green lanyard is available to alert staff not to approach or talk unless invited.
