What you’ll do
Join us for a calm and friendly Relaxed Opening of our ‘Milk’ exhibition. The gallery will be less busy than usual. It will be quieter and the lighting will be more even.
We will also provide sensory equipment, including:
- ear defenders
- tinted glasses
- tinted visors
- weighted lap pads.
You can come to our Chill-Out Room to lie down or relax. There will be low lighting, comfortable seating, cushions and mats throughout the room. Make use of ear defenders, earplugs, board games and materials with different textures.
There are three Relaxed Openings. The events in May and July are during our normal opening hours, and the rest of the building will be open and in use. The Relaxed Opening in September will be after our normal hours, and the rest of the building will be closed.
This sensory map of the exhibition gallery (PDF 626kb) contains information to help you plan and prepare for your visit. We will also provide a visual story in advance.
