SENDsational Mornings at Tring


Event information

An opportunity for children with neurodiverse conditions to enjoy the Museum at a quieter time. 

26 May, 18 August and 10 November


Free - bookings essential

We are excited to present SENDsational Mornings at Tring, Hertfordshire.

Our SENDsational mornings offer children with neurodiverse conditions, including autism and other sensory processing difficulties, the chance to take part in activities and enjoy our galleries with their families and siblings away from the hustle and bustle of the general public. 

This event is best for children aged five to 15 and siblings are welcome.

What can you expect from the experience?

  • Visitors have access to a few activities including specimen handling, crafting and a gallery trail.
  • All activities are supported by experienced, autism-aware facilitators.
  • A sensory space will be available for those children needing a quieter and calmer space.
  • All of the galleries, outdoor spaces and the shop will be accessible throughout the event.
  • Each event has a different theme. In May it's rainforests, in August it's Oceans and the theme for November is Autumn.

Walk-ups are not possible - you must have a ticket. Adult tickets are limited to three per group.

We will email more information about your visit a week in advance, to help you prepare for your visit. On the day you will be given a programme and map to let you know what you can do.

The Museum in South Kensington has been successfully running a similar event called Dawnosaurs for the past four years.

Before your visit take a look at our pre-visit information including a visual guide and logistics and facilities information.
