FREE SESSIONS DEVELOPED WITH AUTISM BERKSHIRE
Reading Museum and The Museum of English Rural Life are recently launched ‘Museums, My Way’, a new series of sessions for neurodiverse visitors of all ages.
These sessions, developed with Autism Berkshire, provide a safe environment to explore the museums at times when they are usually closed to the public or are less busy. There are facilitated activities on themes inspired by the museums’ collections, and a quiet break-out space. Siblings, families, carers and friends are all welcome.
This session will be on the theme of ‘Biscuits and Food’ and will includes
- reduced volume of gallery interactive sounds
- sensory backpacks and ear defenders
- break out spaces
- themed facilitated hands-on activity
- themed gallery trail
All activities are optional and you can visit at any point within the event times.
The Next session will take place at the MERL on May 30th 10am-2pm
And then at Reading Museum on Wednesday 11th June 2022, 3-5 pm.
