Sensory sunday 02


Come along to the first of a series of new sensory play sessions for children with additional support needs.

Families with children with additional support needs and disabilities are invited to join a new programme of sensory play sessions at the National Museum of Scotland.

These sessions are designed for children aged 5–10, but please email communities@nms.ac.uk if your child is outside this age bracket but you think they might enjoy coming along.

Sensory Sunday sessions will be relaxed, fun and hands-on and will respond to the needs of the families participating. You are welcome to come and go at any point during the session.

This Sensory Sunday is part of Maths Week Scotland, so we will be exploring the theme of Maths in Motion through crafts and hands-on activities.

Sensory Sunday sessions will take place in our Learning Centre which is a secure space with accessible toilets nearby. A separate quiet/break-out room will also be available should it be needed.

Refreshments will be provided.

FREE but booking essential as places are limited. Please book via the link below.

Location: National Museum of Scotland, Chambers Street, Studio 2, Level 4, Learning Centre
