Experiencing the museum

Child looking through tunnel with sensory light

Come and explore!

Join us for a festive edition of our relaxed early openings where families can explore the museum in a relaxed environment, sensitive to the needs of children with an autism spectrum condition. The galleries will be open exclusively for Morning explorer families from 9-10am and you will be able to visit our Mudlarks childrens' gallery from 10.10-10.40am. Activities will include a winter-themed sensory space and object handling. Please note that at 10am the galleries will open to the public. Siblings and children with other types of SEND are very welcome. The programme will be available for ticket holders one week before the event. Once you have booked your free ticket there will be an opportunity to purchase a ticket to an exclusive slot in our Santa's Grotto. With thanks for the support John Horniman’s Children’s Trust.
