  • Zoology Museum autism-friendly opening

    Date and Time: Mon, 12 August 2019, 13:00 – 14:00 BST

    University Museum Of Zoology, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EJ

    We will be opening our museums at times when we are normally closed for children, who need a quieter environment.

    We will be opening the Museum of Zoology for you to explore. Come & discover the wonders of animal life.

    There are limited spaces to keep the museums from feeling too overwhelming & a ‘chill’ out space will be available if a time out is needed. We will turn off any sounds & will control the lighting as best we can.

    The events are free to attend but booking is required. Please book places for any family members that will be attending too. Prior to the event you’ll be sent out a visual story for the museum.

    Book places here

    We look forward to welcoming you to our museum.
