Sensory Friendly Sessions at the Sciencentre and Museum
Sensory Friendly Sessions at the Queensland Museum
Queensland Museum will host a Sensory Friendly Session on Tuesday, 21 May 2019.
For this very special afternoon, the museum will turn the sound down and make accommodations to support visitors who prefer a quieter, sensory-friendly experience.
Entry to some of our ticketed exhibitions will be strictly limited to ensure visitors with sensory processing challenges can comfortably explore the museum, so guests are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
There will also be a peaceful Chill Out Zone set up as a dedicated quiet space for use during the visit.
Entry is free to the Museum, though bookings are essential for the following exhibitions:
- Ticket for both exhibitions $20 – Buy tickets
Companion cards are accepted on the day with a ticketed guest. Children under 5 are free.
What to expect
Queensland Museum will make some modifications to our displays and exhibits. While all endeavours will be made to minimise the noise levels of the exhibits, not all of them will be completely silent.

- 2pm – 3pm: Museum AV levels adjusted. Signage installed to assist families on their visit.
- 3pm – 5.45pm: Museum AV turned down. Limited visitor numbers for SparkLab and NASA – A Human Adventure (bookings are essential).
