Chelmsford Museum

Oaklands Park, Moulsham Street, CM2 9AQ Chelmsford, Essex
We're marking World Autism Awareness Day by hosting an afternoon of free, fun activities for everyone, especially those with a family member on the autism spectrum.

● Dig
● Handle historic objects
● Dress-up in replica & period costumes
● Pose for a souvenir photo in front of a period 'green screen' backdrop

With puzzles, a detective trail and exploration of the gallery using our sensory stimulation guide, there's something to keep everyone entertained.

There will also be a comfy chill out area for those who need to relax, with ear defenders available on request.

Call us on 01245 605700 for more details.
