Event information
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

We look forward to welcoming you to the Polar Museum for a relaxed morning aimed at children with special educational needs and disabilities, who usually find visiting museums overwhelming due to conditions that affect their sensory processing and/or have a developmental disability, and their families, siblings and carers.

During this time, the museum will be open exclusively for families with children with sensory sensitivities, so we can ensure a quieter environment.

We will be opening the Museum for you to explore. Come and discover stories and objects about Polar adventure and exploration.

There are very limited spaces to keep the museums from feeling too overwhelming. We will turn off any sounds and will control the lighting as best we can.

We provide a chill out space, a sensory den, sensory stories, a craft table and a safe, friendly museum to explore.

The events are free to attend but booking is required. Please book places for any family members that will be attending too. Prior to the event you’ll be sent out a visual story. We look forward to welcoming you to the museum.

Please email Marie mfk25@cam.ac.uk If you have any questions about the session.
