Quiet Hour @ Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium, Hampshire

January 18 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm

Our dedicated quiet hours provide an opportunity to experience the Science Centre in a calm and relaxed environment, developed for children with sensory sensitivities and their families.

Explore the exhibition floor at your own pace, without the hustle and bustle! Our quiet sessions include some special adjustments to make your visit more comfortable and enjoyable:

–         We will not be open to the general public

–         Lighting levels will be lowered where possible

–         No tannoy announcements will be made during the hour

–         Additional sensory activities will be running

–         Extra relaxed screenings will be showing in the planetarium. See our planetarium listings page for more information.

–         Our team of Inspirers will be on hand to help

Following the quiet hour, visitors are welcome to stay for the whole day.
