Quiet mornings are returning to a popular Dorset attraction to support visitors with sensory needs.

All sounds and interactives at the Tank Museum in Bovington will be turned off between 9am and 11am on four different weekend days – the first being Saturday, June 15.

During this time, visitors can explore the impressive collection of armoured vehicles in a calm environment.

Visitor Experience General Manager, Rosanna Dean said: “The museum recognises that noise levels can cause sensory overload, and the quiet mornings enable visitors to experience the exhibitions in a peaceful setting.

“The museum has also introduced a wellbeing room for those requiring a restful environment.”

Visitors with special educational needs or disabilities can also borrow a sensory backpack for free, which includes ear defenders, a fidget toy, and Commander Basil bear.

Tickets can be purchased on the day or pre-booked online from: tankmuseum.org/quiet-mornings.
