Welcome to the Autism Events Calendar
Our Relaxed Openings are designed for visitors who would prefer a quieter visit to our museum.
During the event, we will put our lights on full and turn off all the sound effects so it’s a less overwhelming environment. You’ll still be able to visit all the galleries, but there will be no dark areas and no sudden sounds. We will still have guides on Kirkgate in Victorian costume and we will still put on the films in the prison gallery, but we can tell you beforehand of what to expect.
