Autism-friendly early opening Calendar

18 March 2018 - 18 March 2018
9am - 10:30am


NFM_0712-35 small

Please note that we are currently revamping our autism-friendly early opening programme, with a view to providing a bigger and better programme before the end of 2019. Check our website and social media accounts for the latest updates.

The National Football Museum will be opening its doors early for children with autism, their families, friends and carers.

Families can explore the galleries in a calm and relaxed environment before the general public access. Gallery sound levels will be minimal with a quiet room available. There will be plenty of opportunities to kick a football around in our Football Plus+ interactives, while non-football fans can enjoy craft activities, handling objects, trails and more.

The activities are free of charge and you can just drop in. Activities are suitable for children aged 5-16 years with their parents or carer.

The museum will be looking to establish regular monthly openings of this nature; please check our What's On page for the latest dates.
