We open our galleries early on the first Sunday of the month especially for children with autism and their families, friends and carers.

Families can explore the Border Galleries at their own pace in a calm and relaxed environment.  We will also provide 'Explorer Rucksacks' including handling objects, trails, torches and magnifying glasses to help you get the most out of your self-guided visit.

Regular admission charges apply but additional activities and the Arts Award are free! Activities suitable for children and young people aged 5 – 16 with a parent, carer or siblings.

This programme has been funded by Arts Council England Partnership Investment Funding through Connect and Creative Futures Cumbria.
