Relaxed Openings in 2024

Come along to our relaxed openings, which are designed for visitors who would prefer a quieter experience in the gallery.

Interactives will be turned down or off to create a quieter experience for visitors who prefer it. There are a small number of interactives that are on motion sensors and cannot be turned off. We can never guarantee how quiet or busy the Gallery might be during these sessions, however, we will not book in any groups or school visits during these days.

There is seating provided around the museum should you need it.

More accessibility information can be found on our website -
