Tactile Explorers

Designed for SEND students, this session explores the family home of Charles Dickens where he lived, wrote and entertained. Handle some of the objects from our collection, try some dressing up, and ‘channel your inner Dickens’ by writing with real quill pens and ink!
This sensory tour includes a variety of activities around the museum. Get in touch with us to discuss your students’ access needs and we will design an experience to suit your group.
Maximum of 15 students per session. All Tactile Explorers sessions will be charged at the off-peak rate.
