How have we adapted our usual factory tour?

We have adapted the environment by reducing noise levels and making some of our machinery demonstrations optional rather than standard. Group sizes are also smaller and we provide a quiet room (which includes a lava lamp, gentle lighting and cushions) for those who need some space during the tour. Our tour guide and front of house volunteers are trained in, or have experience of the Autistic Spectrum.

There will also be a special trail with Fred the factory cat for younger audiences, and we have put together some PECS (Picture Exchange Communication Systems) to help us communicate with everyone on the tour.

We’ve timed our Relaxed experience to be the last tour of the day so we can be more flexible with time to suit the needs of the group.

Most importantly, there will be a relaxed atmosphere where you can learn and enjoy discovering our wonderful ‘time capsule’ factory together as a family or with friends. All areas of the museum are wheelchair accessible.

Our Relaxed experience has been developed with one of our museum volunteers who is on the Autistic spectrum.
