Slow Museums

Slow Museums provides a welcoming environment for anyone who needs more time to visit our museums and galleries. They support those who live with visible, invisible, intellectual or cognitive disability as well as their families and carers. Staff have received extra training and are delighted to offer a warm welcome

They offer:

  • Dedicated time each month where staff can assist anyone who needs more time.
  • Extra seating and a supportive environment for you to find out more about the culture and history of the North East.
  • Planned exhibits and lots of little extras to help you explore

Visitors are not identified as having additional needs and there is no separation which can be the source of more stress.

Afternoons, drop in anytime between 2-4pm
