Autism friendly museums

We’ve developed free training for museums to be autism friendly and join our autism friendly cinemas and libraries in pioneering inclusive and accessible venues all across the country.

This training isn’t compulsory, but it is free. We’re calling on museums to use our free resources and on families, carers and people with autism to ask their museums to take part.

People want more autism friendly environments

Our research shows that 80% of people with autism have felt excluded from their local community.

People worry most about being judged by others.

Staff training, tolerance of noise and understanding from the public are the adjustments most important to people with autism, and their carers.

We have developed our training in response to this, while providing resources to make the experience easier for sensory sensitive guests.

There’s no obligation for museums to participate, but we hope that most will choose to.
