Explore the galleries and take part in sensory-based activities at this event, designed to be more accessible for children and adults who are autistic, learning disabled, or have mental health conditions.
Selected parts of the Museum (Rooms 42, 43 and 43a) will open at 8am until 10am for two hours, before the Museum opens to the public.
Visitors can explore the galleries and take part in sensory-based activities including object-handling and arts and crafts.
The event includes a creative drop-in workshop led by Iqra Babar, an 'Autistic ADHDer, Muslim and Pakistani digital artist and neurodivergent advocate' who explores the intersection of her identity within art and creates a diverse range of fictional characters for her comic book Darjin.
