The Autism friendly museum

museum building

Written for children in consultation with AMAZE, the stories have photographs to show children what they'll encounter during a visit to Scienceworks. You can read them online as a webpage, or you can download a Word document to print out. You can also cut and paste the stories to create a story that best suits your child.

 


Map of high and low sensory spaces

The museum can be a confronting place for sensitive visitors. Use our map of high and low sensory spaces to plan a visit to suit your child.

Low sensory spaces, coloured blue on the map, are quiet areas that are bright, have few people and no multimedia. High sensory spaces, indicated in red, are busy places with a mix of multimedia, loud noises and/or low light.
