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 social stories and sensory maps 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 planned sensory-friendly visit. 

Here are some resources developed to support quiet visits;
