A quiet change will come over the The Workshops Rail Museum tomorrow afternoon.
Under the guidance of Autism Queensland children with sensory processing difficulties can enjoy a Sensory Friendly Day out with Thomas between 1-4pm.
Noise levels of displays and activities will be reduced and a performance by The Fat Controller will change to a quieter storytelling session.
Queensland Museum Network CEO Professor Suzanne Miller said the event follows success of similar events at Queensland Museum’s Sciencentre at South Bank.
“We’re proud to be working with Autism Queensland to ensure our operational exhibits are modified to suit the needs of children with sensory processing difficulties,” she said.
Autism Queensland CEO Rod Cameron said the size of The Workshops Rail Museum and exhibit design would work well for those families whose children struggle with crowds.
“Thomas should be a wonderful experience for the families who participate in this special event. The kids can have a great day out and their parents can connect with others who experience similar challenges,” he said.
