Morning Explorers @ Thinktank, Birmingham
November 10 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
If you’re an adult or a child on the autistic spectrum or with other special needs and would prefer a quieter visit to our museums, join one of our Morning Explorers sessions!
In November, Morning Explorers heads to Thinktank, Birmimgham’s science museum with four floors of hands-on activities and exhibits about science, technology and nature, past, present and future. Thinktank will open early to allow you and your family to explore together in a quiet and welcoming environment.
The whole museum will be open only to Morning Explorers from 9am-10am. General public will start arriving from 10am but Level 0 will be kept for Morning Explorers only from 10am-11am, giving you two hours to explore at your own pace, and of course everyone is welcome to stay as long as they want after 11 if you’re having a good time!
Entry to Morning Explorers is half price with one free carer place. Tickets can be pre-booked by calling 0121 348 8263. If you’d like to prepare for your visit, Thinktank have a number of Social Stories online you can use – see http://www.birminghammuseums.org.uk/thinktank/visit/facilities-accessibility. Ear defenders are also available at the front desk if you forget your own.
If you’re enjoying a museum day, you can also follow your visit with an autism-friendly Relaxed Guided Tour at 11am, at the amazing Coffin Works factor, just a short walk away. The relaxed tours are designed for people on the autistic spectrum, with learning disabilities, or with sensory or communication disorders. The environment and tour are adapted to reduce anxiety and stress for visitors. Normal admission prices apply, with free carer places. To book on the Coffin Works tour, please call 0121 233 4785.
