Relaxed Early Opening – Autism Friendly @ Great North Museum: Hancock

August 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am


On Wednesday 8 August the Great North Museum: Hancock will be opening 1 hour earlier. This early opening is an opportunity for people to visit at a quieter time and is aimed at our visitors with autism, learning disabilities or sensory and communication disorders, along with their families and carers.

There will be the opportunity to visit our museum wide special exhibition ‘Which Way North’

At 10.00 am the museum will open to the general public and you are more then welcome to stay longer or leave the museum to enjoy the rest of your day elsewhere. On this day we will be running screenings of Wallace and Gromit which are free and drop in at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

Please note that there is no public parking on site and there are limited blue badge spaces which are available on the day on a first come first serve basis. If you have a blue badge and the spaces are full then we will endeavor to find an alternative parking spot on site.

Free, but booking required. Donations encouraged.
