Since 2014 Manchester Art Gallery has been holding monthly autism friendly sessions on a Saturday morning aimed at children with autism and their families, features include:

• Galleries open at 9.15 so you can experience the gallery at a quieter, calmer time

• Artist led workshops and activities

• Staff trained in Autism Awareness

• A quiet room available for moments that might be a bit difficult

The next session will take place on 26th May 9.15 – 11.15 am

They are now extending our sessions to welcome adults who may just want to come to experience the gallery at a quieter time.

Please feel free to call Katy McCall on 0161 235 8869 at the Art Gallery if you have any questions or would like to find out more.

Manchester Museum also offer Autism Friendly Early Openings on the second Saturday of every month, 9.15-10.30am
