For Families

Brick Dinos Autism Friendly Hour

Brick Dinos Exhibit

Monday 21 August

Autism friendly hour will happen outside of normal visiting times when the gallery will be closed to other visitors so you can explore the Brick Dinos exhibition in your own way.

What time? 10am -11am    

For ages? Under 12s and their parent/guardians 

Cost? Free

Do I need to book in advance? Yes. Call 01772 905414  




Friends and family are welcome.

Places are limited so please give total numbers visiting when booking to avoid disapointment.

Description: Brick Dinos is on the 2nd floor and accessible by stairs and a lift. We guarantee that the only people in the gallery space will be those that have booked, our staff and volunteers. There are no flashing lights or strobe effects in the exhibition but there is a gently lit water effect in one gallery. There are some sound effects which will be turned down for the hour - spare ear defenders will be available. There is a resource area inside the exhibition with activities and lego® bricks to play with and an optional activity led by trained staff. One of the other galleries on the 2nd floor will be available as a quieter, softer area. You are welcome to stay after the autism friendly hour finishes and when the galleries are open to other visitors.

With low level lighting

Ear defenders available (or if you wish bring your own)
