Description

Children and adults with additional needs can enjoy W5 in a quieter environment this summer.

W5's Quiet Sessions are all the same fun but with much less hustle and bustle.

Quiet Sessions at W5 will:

  • Limit admissions to ensure a calm and relaxing atmosphere
  • Lower the volume on exhibits where possible and highlight exhibits which may be a little loud but have no volume control
  • Open The Lost Planet soft activity zone at no extra cost and without timed sessions
  • Allow adults on Climbit and The Lost Planet (in a caring capacity)
  • Allow access to the Quiet Room, if required

Please note, noise levels and capacity will increase at 12pm but Quiet Session visitors are welcome to stay until closing time.

Carers go free with a full paying child. Proof of carer status required.
