About this event

Early Birds provides a reduced-sensory, relaxed and supportive environment. This can make visiting the museum easier for visitors on the autism spectrum or those who have other access requirements, together with their family and friends. Make sure you register to experience the Australian Museum before it opens to the public.

Features of the event:

  • Designated quiet area for those needing to take a break
  • A Visual Story with more details on what to expect
  • Autism awareness and disability trained staff
  • A supportive environment limited to only around 100 visitors. You have the whole museum all to yourselves until 10am!
  • There will be a kiosk open for those needing an early morning beverage or snack. The main café will open from 10am.

Ages: All welcome!

Date: Saturday 16 January 2021

Time: 8am-10am, after which time the museum will be open to the public, however, Early Birds are welcome to stay for the remainder of the day.

Cost: FREE. Additional cost for visitors wanting to purchase entry to 'Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family' special exhibition (optional extra that can be purchased at Admissions on the day of event).

Bookings essential. Places are limited and tickets should be booked in advance. There will be multiple Early Birds events throughout the year. Dates in 2021 include, 16 January; 10 April; 10 July; 2 October.

For note: Please advise of access requirements or requests at time of booking. We offer a range of accessible services including wheelchairs, hearing loops, and audio description tours. We recommend bringing along a favourite device as a comfort or distraction.
