Autism Friendly Hours

Join Glasgow Science Centre for their monthly Autism Friendly Hours - all the same fun to be had, but with much less hustle and bustle on a Sunday morning!

Autism Friendly Hours

About Autism Friendly Hours

We know GSC is an exciting place, bustling with loud sounds and bright lights so we are lowering the volume and softening the lights to allow adults and children with autism to enjoy their visit without additional stress.

We have been working with Autism Network Scotland to make our staff more autism aware and help us understand what changes we can make to create an autism friendly visitor experience.

As well as lowering light and noise levels, there will be cosy corners and quiet spaces in the Mall with weighted blankets and ear defenders if visitors want to use them.

There is more information on our website.

Prices:
Entry for adults and children with autism is £9, with one accompanying adult free. For additional guests, normal Science Mall entry prices apply. For groups, please contact 0141 420 5000 for more booking information.

Please note:
Lighting and volume levels will resume to regular levels from 11am.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Autism Friendly Hours are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
