Morning Explorers: Exploring Beasts of London @ Museum of London
October 26, 2019 @ 8:00 am
Morning explorers: Exploring Beasts of London
Explore the museum while it’s quiet at this event for families with children who have an autistic spectrum condition.
Become a morning museum explorer at this relaxed early opening, sensitive to the needs of children with autistic spectrum conditions.
In this special session, the museum’s galleries will be open exclusively to Morning Explorer families from 8.30-10am, as well as our immersive Beasts of London experience free of charge. There are also extra activities you can take part in.
Beasts of London is an immersive, audio visual experience, with lots of lights, sounds and moving images. We will reduce the audio and provide ear defenders to borrow.
The extra activities taking place around the galleries are:
- Special activity by ‘Bittersuite’ – Take part in a sensory animal activity created especially for Morning Explorer families by company ‘Bittersuite’.
- Object handling – We have some real museum artefacts that you can hold, and hear more about their stories.
- Lion artwork – Find our large lion artwork and add to it with sensory fabrics and craft materials.
- Animal mask making – Help yourself to a template and some craft materials to make an animal mask.
Visual stories of both the galleries and the Beasts of London experience will be emailed upon booking.
Siblings of children with SEND are welcome as well.
With thanks for the support of John Horniman’s Children’s Trust.
