Sensory-friendly Family Days

Science Oxford Centre

Family Day


Visit the Science Oxford Centre for our Sensory-friendly day with a reduced visitor capacity, to better accommodate and support families who experience autism and/or have other additional needs. Explore, discover and play in the Exploration Zone; pick up our Explorer Backpack & trail map and see what wildlife you can spot in the woodland and ponds – why not bring a picnic!

During your visit, we please ask that everyone respects the space and needs of others, so that everyone can enjoy their time at the Science Oxford Centre in a way that is comfortable for them. If you require use of a quiet space during your visit, please ask a member of staff for assistance. We also have noise-cancelling headphones available on request.

Session Times:
10.00am – 12.00pm
12.30pm – 2.30pm
3.00pm – 5.00pm
Suitable for ages 3+ (all welcome)
£7.50 per person (includes Eventbrite booking fee). Free tickets available for Under 3s and Carers.
