Relaxed Opening at Colchester Castle
Relaxed Openings are designed to make the museum a less challenging space for visitors with ASD (Autistic Spectrum Disorder), although a quieter visit may appeal to other people too.
We will aim to make the Castle as calm and welcoming a space as possible, mainly by turning off the Audio-visuals.
We will also be turning off the automatic doors at the entrance, the hand-driers in the toilets and the vending machines.
We will create a calm seating area in the entrance to the Crypt and a Sensory area in the Lucas Vault.
+ Relaxed Opening will run for 2 hours from 10am to 12pm.
+ The shop will open at 11am as usual.
+ Visitor numbers will be limited to 60 people until 12pm.
+ At 12pm we will open as usual and restart the Audio-visuals.
+ Entry prices for the Castle apply (Free entry for accompanying carers): https://cimuseums.org.uk/visit/venues/colchester-castle/making-a-visit/
