We know that a typical visit to Esplora Interactive Science Centre can be quite challenging for those who feel overwhelmed with loud sounds and bright lights. That is why, at Esplora we have created the Sensory Friendly Hours, during which we adjust the ambiance inside Esplora to allow neurodiversity children and adults to explore the science centre and fully enjoy everything that we have to offer in a peaceful atmosphere. Our team are trained and will always be on hand to support parents and caregivers if ever needed.
During the visit, you can participate in one of our Workshops or Science shows that have been specifically adapted for Sensory Friendly Hours. You can also enjoy our Planetarium and Universe experience if you would like!
The next Sensory Friendly Hours will be held on Sunday 24th April between 9am and 11am. If you would like to visit Esplora during these hours, kindly fill in this form: https://forms.gle/QeT39Bm9ybJiZSmM9

Social Stories are social learning tools, Esplora’s Social Story describes in photographs what a typical visit might look like, to help reduce any anxiety that a visitor may have when they visit our Interactive Science Centre.
