SENDsational Mornings at Tring

  • Sunday 29 May

    Sunday 21 August

  • From 10.00

  • Free

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

Children with neurodiverse conditions including autism and other sensory processing difficulties can enjoy the Museum with their families and siblings, free from the hustle and bustle of the general public.

Our sister museum in South Kensington has been successfully running a similar event called Dawnosaurs for the past four years.

What can you expect from the experience?

  • Visitors have access to a few activities including specimen handling, a big draw 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.

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

You will need to book a ticket in advance and walk-ups will not be possible. To join the mailing list to be notified about the release of tickets please contact us 


  • Frequently asked questions

    Who is this event for?

    SENDsational Mornings events are suitable for children on the autism spectrum between the ages of five and 15. 

    When are the events?

    We ran our first events in 2019 and 2020. We are pleased to be able to reoffer these events in 2022. We plan to run 4x events this year. The next one is on the 6 February. 

    How does it work?

    To join the mailing list, please contact us. You will be notified when bookings are open before each event.

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

    SENDsational Mornings audiences can enter at 10.00 until 12.00. General visitors can enter the Museum from 12.00. Sundays are busy days in the Museum so it can become noisy after 12.00. 

    Is there a cost?

    The events are free.

    Do I need to book?

    Places are limited so booking is essential. Adult tickets are limited to three per group.

    You can apply online three weeks before each event.
