At this Christmas themed Post Early event, visitors can ride Mail Rail, explore the exhibitions with adjustments and lowered volume levels and take part in a facilitated Letters to Santa themed arts and crafts activity. We have some self-guided resources you can borrow to support you on your visit.

Post Early is a relaxed event that has been co-produced with Ambitious about Autism and a group of their autistic Youth Patrons. Although the event is designed to support autistic and neurodiverse people, including families and adults, it is suitable for anyone who would benefit from visiting the museum when it is less crowded and noisy.

To protect the safety of staff and visitors we have made some changes to the experience. If you have visited before it will look a little different, though we have done our best to keep the museum a fun, but safe, place to visit. You can find out more about the changes we have made by looking at our pre-visit  resources for autistic and neurodiverse people.
