Become a morning explorer at the Museum of London

Become one with history, away from the hustle and bustle of the city streets, during an autism friendly adventure with the Museum of London. 

An award-winning, charitable institution: Museum of London is opening up the museum doors for relaxed morning exploration for children and young people on the autistic spectrum. Siblings and children with other forms of SEND are also very welcome – everyone can learn more about the capital.

The galleries will be open exclusively to morning explorer families from 8.30am – 10am. There are also four extra activities people can take part in:


Museum of London will have their iPads on display with a special Ancient Roman themed Minecraft building challenge. Perfect for sensory development – it’s educational and fun!


Be immersed and amazed with the genuine museum artefacts that you can hold, and hear more about their stories.


Rummage the Lego to freestyle your own building designs, inspired by images of buildings in London.


Use the wooden houses and churches to design your own London layout – you might find a future architect in your group.


Explore different craft construction materials like straws, wheels and blocks and create your own buildings.

Morning explorers has been made possible with the team at Museum of London, alongside the support of John Horniman’s Children’s Trust.

So, what are you waiting for? Set those alarms and get ready for some morning exploration through the historic sights, sounds, and smells of historic London.
