Dementia-friendly touch tour: a feast for the senses

A special touch tour event for visitors with dementia and their caregivers.

Visitors with dementia and their caregivers are invited to a special touch tour event. Visitors will be able to handle objects from the museum collections which stimulate the senses, and chat to our curators.

This event is free or charge, however places are limited, so booking is essential.

Please contact Charlotte Spink on 0191 3345694 or email if you have any questions about this event, or would like to book a place.


There is a visual story available on the Access and Facilities page of our website to help you plan your visit.
