If you’re an adult or child with sensory or special needs and you’d prefer a quieter visit to our museums, join us for one of our Morning Explorers sessions! 

Our museums will open early for you to explore with friends and family, in a quiet and welcoming environment.

Early opening of Leonardo da Vinci: A Life in Drawing and Too Cute! Sweet is about to get Sinister curated by the artist Rachel Maclean.

Cautionary warning - ‘Too Cute!' contains images that visitors may find unsettling, and includes sound and vivid colour that could be over-stimulating. With low visitor numbers and reduced audio sound, visitors are welcome to go between the two exhibitions at their own pace.

Places must be pre-booked online (book tickets free) or by calling 0121 348 8263.
