Sensory Friendly Session

For this very special afternoon, we will turn the sound down and make accommodations to support visitors who prefer a quieter, sensory-friendly experience. 

Entry to some of our ticketed exhibitions will be strictly limited to ensure visitors with sensory processing challenges can comfortably explore the museum.
We will also have a peaceful Chill Out Zone set up as a dedicated quiet space for use during the visit.

Date: Wednesday 11 September
Time: 3pm - 5:45pm. Entry from 3pm onwards.

Level: Level 2 


Entry is free to the Museum, though bookings are essential for the following exhibitions:

SparkLab all tickets $10 - Buy tickets
NASA – A Human Adventure all tickets $12 - Buy tickets

• Ticket for both exhibitions $20 - Buy tickets

Children under 5 years are free. Companion card holders are entitled to free entry. If visiting the ticketed exhibitions, present your ticket anytime from 3pm onwards for entry. 

What to expect

We will make some modifications to our displays and exhibits. While we will do our best to minimise the noise levels of the exhibits, not all of them will be completely silent. 

9:30am – 2pm - Usual AV levels in the Museum.  

2pm – 3pm - Museum AV levels adjusted. Signage installed to assist families on their visit.
