Free guided tours: It's Rocket Science
Aimed at visitors who have particular access needs
29 August 2018 (historic exhibition)
3 September 2018 (historic exhibition)
4 September 2018 (historic exhibition)
Three bespoke tours have been created for different communities who may need particular assistance to access and enjoy our Great Exhibition of the North displays, which include It's Rocket Science.
- A tour for blind, partially sighted and visually impaired visitors
Wednesday 29 August, 3.40-4.40pm
A tour guide will give both a description and information about the various exhibits as well as audio description as the tour takes place.
- A tour for people with learning disabilities or who consider themselves to be on the autistic spectrum
Monday 3 September, 3:40-4.40pm
The tour guide will have received training in communicating with a wide range of people and will be able to answer most questions that may be posed about the exhibition.
- A tour for older people or those with dementia
Tuesday 4 September, 3:40-4.40pm
The tour guide will be aware of specific communication and interpretation issues that older people may have and therefore the tour will cover as much of the exhibition as possible in the time available. This will mean people attending the tour will not feel rushed or hassled and can enjoy their museum visit fully.
