    Relaxed Performance information
    The Museum is closed to the public to create as quiet and relaxed an environment as possible.
    We have a quiet area, communication cards and sensory items, including sensory backpacks, available. These are also available for visitors who take part in our other Science Festival workshops.
    Our well-trained team are very happy to answer questions and do what they can to make all visitors feel welcome.
    The door to the workshop space is kept open so visitors can come and go as they please.
    Visitors are welcome to stay on after the workshops finish and explore the Museum while it is closed to the public.
