About this event

Autism-friendly Family Evening: Wonders

Date: Friday July 2nd , 2021

Time: 5:15pm-8pm

Location: South Australian Museum

Cost: Free

Come along to the Museum after we open to the public. Anyone with autism or other sensory needs and their families can enjoy a quieter, less crowded visit to the Museum, as well as participating in science and craft activities. This is a chance to see all of our permanent galleries, and maybe discover something you've never noticed before! Our new exhibition, Wonders from the South Australian Museum, will be open and free to visit.

What is this event?

From 5:15pm-8pm, we'll open all the galleries to visitors with tickets for the event.

Tickets are free and are only available for people with autism and their accompanying family, friends or support workers.

We also have our autism-friendly morning on 24th April 2021: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/autism-friendly-morning-wonders-of-the-south-australian-museum-tickets-147027064909

Who is this event for?

While everyone is always welcome at the Museum, we acknowledge that sometimes the crowds and noise make visits harder for autistic visitors. We will be altering some of the screens, lights and sounds around the Museum to make it more accessible for this special event, and there will be a sensory area. We have worked with Autism SA to provide autism awareness training for Museum staff.

How do I book?

Please book a ticket on Eventbrite for each attendee, including family members, friends and support workers (there is no need to book a ticket for a child under 3).
