Event description

Description

Our Relaxed experience is a factory tour which has been designed specifically for people on the Autistic Spectrum and their families, and suitable also for people with a learning disability or sensory and communication disorder.

We have adapted the environment by reducing noise levels and making some of our machinery demonstrations optional rather than standard. Group sizes are also smaller and we provide a quiet room (which includes a lava lamp, gentle lighting and cushions) for those who need some space during the tour. Our tour guide and front of house volunteers are trained in, or have experience of the Autistic Spectrum.

There will also be a special trail with Fred the factory cat for younger audiences, and we have put together some PECS (Picture Exchange Communication Systems) to help us communicate with everyone on the tour.

We’ve timed our Relaxed experience to be the last tour of the day so we can be more flexible with time to suit the needs of the group. We have also included taxis to and from New Street Station and food after the tour in order to make the whole day easier for everyone, especially those travelling from outside Birmingham.

Most importantly, there will be a relaxed atmosphere where you can learn and enjoy discovering our wonderful ‘time capsule’ factory together as a family or with friends. All areas of the museum are wheelchair accessible.
