Sensory Friendly Day out with Thomas™ Session

Day Out With Thomas

Wednesday 8 April 2020 

For this very special session we will turn the sound down and create an engaging and fun space that children with sensory processing challenges can enjoy.

We will also have a couple of chill out zone options if some quiet space is required as well as child-sized earmuffs from EMs 4 Kids available for use during your visit.


What to expect

Fat Controller storytelling

We will make some modifications to our displays and activities. While we will do our best to minimise the noise levels of the exhibits and activities, not all of them will be completely silent. The performance by The Fat Controller will be changed to a quieter session.

  • 8am: Gates open for exclusive access to the event with Museum AV displays sound turned down.
  • 8:45am: Special quiet performance by The Fat Controller.
  • 8am-9:30am: Visitor numbers will be limited to 250 visitors (bookings are essential).
  • 9:30am: Gates open to general admission ticket holders. Sound levels will remain down on Museum exhibits until 11:00 am when usual sound levels resume.
