Take some time for a sensory friendly visit to the WA Shipwrecks 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 Shipwrecks Museum in a quiet mode.

The Museum generally experiences it's most quiet visitor period after 2pm on weekdays. We would love to see you there!

See the links below developed to support quiet visits
