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 visual stories and sensory map will assist family visitors that are keen to explore the Shipwrecks Museum in a quiet mode.

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

Here are some resources developed to support quiet visits
