Join us on a Shh Sunday (the first Sunday of the month) at Peterborough Museum & Art Gallery, ideal for anyone looking for a quieter or more relaxed visit.
Busy museum galleries and noisy interactives can have an impact on visitors with sensory access requirements. Therefore we have launched Shh Sundays where we offer a quieter museum visit. All of our interactives and gallery sounds will be switched off, the lighting adjusted (where possible) and visitors will be asked to wander our galleries mindful of others. There will also be a quiet space set aside for those who wish to escape the noise completely.
Everyone is welcome, however these Shh Sundays are tailored for – but not limited to – children, young people and adults with autism; people with social, emotional, or mental health needs; adults living with dementia; and any other visitors with sensory needs or who may prefer a calmer experience.
We certainly don’t expect you to be silent though – we hope you have fun exploring the museum galleries and really enjoy your visit!
