∗Quiet viewing time

At these time we hope to create a quiet reflective experience for those visiting, with lower sound levels and lower visitor numbers. We’d ask those visiting at these times to keep noise to a minimum so everyone can enjoy a quieter experience.

∗∗Relaxed viewing time
We welcome adults and children during these times who would like a more relaxed time to enjoy GAIA. Sound levels will be lowered. Visitors should feel comfortable to make noise and move around the space in this autism friendly environment.
