Take some time for a sensory-friendly visit to the WA Maritime Museum with your family.
In consultation with Autism WA, we have developed some resources for families that will help you plan and enjoy a sensory-sensitive visit with us. These visual stories and sensory map will assist family visitors that are keen to explore the Maritime Museum in a quiet atmosphere.
The Museum generally experiences a quieter period from 2pm on weekdays, which we recommend for a planned sensory-friendly visit.
Here are some resources developed to support quiet visits
