Sensory friendly morning at the South Australian Museum

Event description

A quiet, sensory friendly morning for visitors of all ages, their families, friends and support workers.

Visitors with sensory or accessibility needs can enjoy a quieter, less crowded visit to the South Australian Museum out of hours. This is a chance to see all of the permanent galleries, and maybe discover something you’ve never noticed before. 

While everyone is always welcome at the Museum, sometimes the crowds and noise make visits harder for neurodiverse visitors and those living with a disability. Some of the screens, lights and sounds around the Museum will be altered for the morning to make it a more sensory friendly experience.

This is a ticketed event for people with sensory needs and their accompanying family, friends or support workers. Please purchase a ticket for all attendees when you book, as numbers are limited to ensure a quiet environment.

This is a pay-what-you-can event:
Please contribute what you can afford to give for each ticket and enjoy this event. The Museum's access programming is funded solely through donations, and we are grateful for every contribution no matter how big or small. Your contribution will help us to continue to present these programs into the future. 

Attendees are welcome to extend their visit beyond the end of this event, however please note that ticket holders will start arriving for the first sessions of Superluminal at 9.45am, so noise and crowds may increase from this time. Entry to Superluminal is not included with this event. 
The Museum Shop and Museum Cafe are not open during this event, both will open from 10.00am

For more information about access and inclusion at the South Australian Museum please visit our website.
