Social Script, Visual Schedule & Sensory Bag

Would you like to know a bit about the Gallery before you arrive for a visit? Download our Social Script, a visual and scripted guide to view so you know what to expect before your visit.

Available at the Gallery reception desk is our Visual Schedule, which includes nine picture and word cards about what you can see and do in the Gallery.  This has been designed to assist visitors who may experience anxiety if visiting for the first time.

The Gallery has created a Sensory Bag for people that live with sensory processing sensitivities, their families and carers, available any time the gallery is open. Please ask our staff if you would like to use the bag and the sensory assistance items (availability is subject to NSW Health regulations).

If you would like a rest during your visit to the Gallery, we have seated quiet indoor spaces and in our garden.
