Ely Museum has introduced new ‘quiet hours’ for those who feel they would benefit from a quieter, more relaxed visit. 

Quiet Hours at Ely Museum will take place during the first Sunday of every month, with the first on March 6 from 3:30pm until 5pm. 

Everyone is welcome to the museum during the quiet hours, but the time is especially ideal for those who find the usual sounds of the museum more challenging. 

A spokesperson for Ely Museum said: “We’re delighted to introduce our new quiet hours.

“We certainly don’t expect you to be quiet on your visit though, and all the usual exhibits will be available just with reduced, muted or subtitled sounds.” 

They added: “There will also be a quiet space set aside in the Aedwen Room for those who wish to escape the noise completely. 

“Fitted with comfortable seats, tables, and a sensory tent, it is the perfect spot to take a moment.”
