Details

Enjoy a little calm at the Castle and join us on the first Sunday of the month for a Relaxed Opening.
These sessions are suitable for visitors with ASD, providing an opportunity for them to explore the museum at a quieter time. We aim to minimise sensory stimulation on the galleries by turning off audio and visuals, whilst providing a sensory space off the main gallery.
Visitors are welcome to stay after 12noon, but after this time audio-visuals will be restarted.
