We are pleased to share details of some special mornings at the Natural History Museum. These sessions and workshops are ideal for autistic children. They are held early so to avoid any crowds:
“Dawnosaurs is a free event for children on the autism spectrum to enjoy the Museum with their families and siblings, free from the hustle and bustle of the general public.
Visitors have access to a wide-ranging programme of activities, including a chance to see, meet and even touch live animals. All activities are supported by experienced, autism-aware facilitators.
A dedicated Sensory Room will also be available for those children needing a quieter and calmer space.
This event is best for children aged five to 15, and siblings are welcome.”
The sessions take place at weekends from 8am – 11am. They are free, although booking is advised.
Future sessions include:
20th May Minibeasts
20th October Dinosaurs
8th December Rocks and Gems
