Relaxed Session: Tutankhamun: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh @ Saatchi Gallery, London

February 24 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

RELAXED SESSION

Monday 24 February, 5.30pm

 

The relaxed session has been programmed for anyone who might benefit from visiting the exhibition at a quieter time when you’ll have the opportunity to explore the artefacts in a calm environment.

Attendee numbers will be reduced, as will sound levels and there will be a quiet space available away from the exhibition which you are welcome to utilise. Ear defenders will also be available to borrow.

We welcome families and are sensitive to the needs of visitors with autistic spectrum disorder or other communication and sensory conditions – exhibition staff are always friendly, aware and happy to help.

Plan your visit ahead of time though the exhibition Social Guide.

If you cannot attend this relaxed session but would like to visit at a quieter time we recommend you book weekdays, late afternoon and evening sessions.

Visitors with a disability pay a concessionary rate, and a companion/carers entrance is free.
