About

We The Curious can be a big and sometimes noisy venue with lots going on and we know this can sometimes be challenging for visitors on the autism spectrum. The venue will be open early for this session from 9am and you'll have an hour and a half to explore the exhibits at your own pace, chat about what you discover with the staff, and take part in some intriguing activities. 

There'll be a chance to get involved with research in the citizen science activity, and to have a go at building a chain reaction machine. 

There will be an autism-friendly show in the Planetarium at 10.15am (suitable for age 5+). The fascinating show 'Exploring the Solar System' will be in 2D, with softer music, the lights on and doors open, so you can leave at any time if needed. The show lasts around 30 minutes. 

They will also be opening up the Planetarium for an Open Doors session between 9.15 and 9.45 am. This is a chance to have a look inside the Planetarium and get a feel for the space, prior to the show itself. 

Early opening prices:

Adults and children aged 3 and above: £4.95 / £5.50 with gift aid

Personal Assistants: FREE

Planetarium tickets are an additional £2.50 per person. Please note that places for the show are limited due to capacity, so we recommend booking in advance when you purchase your ticket. You don't need a ticket to pop into the Open Doors session.
