SENSORY SUNDAY

June 9
DYNAMIC EARTH

Dynamic Earth is for everyone! If our regular operations are a little too much for your senses to handle, join us for a Sensory Friendly Sunday, for a quieter, sensory friendly experience. During this event, sounds will be turned down or off, lighting will be adjusted, the science centre will be less busy, and certain spaces will be set up as sensory break spaces. Our iconic underground tour will also be adapted to be sensory friendly so put on a hard hat and join us underground!

** Please also note that our Lapidary Lab workshops will not run on Sensory Sundays as the equipment can be very loud
