Museums, My Way

Themed sessions for neurodiverse visitors of all ages

Mon 8 April, 10:00 - 14:00


Free sessions developed with Autism Berkshire

Last year, Reading Museum and The Museum of English Rural Life launched Museums, My Way, a new series of sessions for neurodivergent visitors of all ages.

These free sessions, developed with Autism Berkshire, provide a safe environment to explore the museums at times when they are usually closed to the public or are less busy. There are facilitated activities on themes inspired by the museums’ collections, and a quiet break-out space. Siblings, families, carers and friends are all welcome.

  • reduced volume of gallery interactive sounds
  • sensory backpacks and ear defenders
  • break out spaces
  • themed facilitated hands-on activity
  • themed gallery trail

All activities are optional and you can visit at any point within the event times.

Museums, My Way is part of The MERL and Reading Museum’s Arts Council funded programme, Museums Partnership Reading.
