London Transport Museum has upcoming ‘Early Explorers’ mornings for schools and families with children with additional needs. Please see the attached LTM Early Explorer Morning 7 April 2018 copy for further details – our Families morning will take place on Saturday 7 April from 8.30am – 10am. If you would like a printed copy of the flyer to share, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Also here is a link to download a social story (London Transport Museum Visual Story for Families copy) for your family to go through before you visit the Museum. We hope this will help prepare your family for what you can expect if you visit. If you would like a printed copy of the Visual Story, please contact email@example.com (This is our first family visual story at the Museum; if you feel this is not appropriate or helpful, or have any other thoughts you’d like to share, I would greatly appreciate your feedback and suggested improvements.)
For this 90 minutes only, London Transport Museum will be open with the majority of sounds switched off, for you to explore in peace and quiet. Your ticket will remain valid after the Museum opens to the general public, during which time you may like to continue exploring the Museum, though the sounds will then be switched on. Until 12pm there will be a quiet room available for families from the Early Explorer morning to go to for a break if needed.
This is a rare opportunity to explore our Family All Aboard Playzone while the Museum is quiet. We will have available our sensory ‘Explorer Bags’ especially developed for children and young people with additional needs as well as an object handling table for those who would like to find out about ticket machines and other smaller parts of our collection.
You can also take part in our family craft activity where children can imagine they are engineers. How would you use recycled materials to change the landscape you live in? Join us to play, build and imagine a new world above and below ground.
Tickets are charged at the standard Museum rate and can be booked in advance by calling 020 7565 729.
