Early Birds enables families with children who have an Autism Spectrum Condition to come along and enjoy the museum free from the hustle and bustle of the general public.
Taking place on selected Saturdays and Sundays across the year, we open the museum early at 08.00, and some of our interactive galleries remain available exclusively to booked Early Birds guests until 11.15. As well as exploring some of the galleries you can enjoy a selection of fun workshops and exciting demonstrations.
All of these events are completely free and suitable for families with children under the age of 15.

The theme for Early Birds on Saturday 14 July is Superbugs. Activities include creating a model bacteria, tours of the Superbugs exhibition, and animal talks with live animals. Prior to the event you will receive a Visual Story and a programme outline with more details to help you with your visit.
