A special early opening for families with children who would enjoy the museum at a quieter time. This would particularly suit those with ASD and other sensory processing differences. 

On the first Saturday of the month, we open the museum exclusively before hours, and wherever possible will have adjusted operations and/or lowered volume levels on exhibits. Enjoy exploring at your own pace or take part in a museum led activity.

There is no upper or lower age limit for this, but children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. £2 per participant; two carers/parents free per booking, additional carers/parents £2 per person.

Pre booking advisable, but you can turn up on the day.

Please note, Enginuity opens to the public at 10am; you are welcome to stay after this time but should be aware that noise levels will increase, and that an entrance ticket will be required.
