About this Event
Come along to the Museum before we open to the public. Families with children and adults on the autism spectrum or with sensory needs can enjoy a quieter, less crowded visit to the Museum. This is a chance to see all of our permanent galleries, and maybe discover something you've never noticed before! Our current exhibition, Australian Geographic Nature Photographer of the Year, will be open and free to visit.
What is this event?
From 8am-10am, we'll open all the galleries to visitors with tickets for the event.
Tickets are free and are only available for people with sensory needs and their accompanying family, friends or support workers.
The Cafe, Shop and Discovery Centre will be open from 8am to ticketed visitors. Please note that the Discovery Centre will close at 10am.
We also have our sensory-friendly evening on October 22nd. (Click here to book for the October event.)
Who is this event for?
While everyone is always welcome at the Museum, we acknowledge that sometimes the crowds and noise make visits harder for some visitors. We will be altering some of the screens, lights and sounds around the Museum to make it more accessible for this special event, and there will be a sensory area. We have worked with Autism SA to provide autism awareness training for Museum staff.
How do I book?
Please book a ticket on Eventbrite for each attendee, including family members, friends and support workers (there is no need to book a ticket for a child under 3).
