Castle Park,


We are piloting relaxed openings sessions at Colchester Castle on Sunday 4th November 2018 and Sunday 2nd December 2018

These sessions will be suitable for visitors with ASD, providing an opportunity for visitors to explore the museum at a quieter time. We will aim to minimise sensory stimulation on the galleries by turning off audio and visuals whilst providing a sensory space off the main gallery.

These pilots are FREE to attend and will run from 10am to 12pm, after which time visitors are welcome to stay, but we will open our doors to more visitors and restart audio-visuals.

To book your places on these pilot sessions please call 07966 240481 or email ben.paites@colchester.gov.uk
