National Football Museum - Autism-friendly early openings - Currently Closed

In accordance with government guidelines, the National Football Museum is closed. We hope to be back in the game very soon!

We will be refunding any tickets that have been pre-purchased for November and December. Any tickets purchased between July and October will be extended by an extra month.

The National Football Museum will be opening its doors early for visitors with autism, their families, friends and carers.

Families can explore the galleries in a calm and relaxed environment before the general public access. Gallery sound levels will be minimal with a quiet room available. There will be plenty of opportunities to kick a football around in our Football Plus+ interactives, while non-football fans can enjoy craft activities, handling objects, trails and more.

The activities are free of charge and you can just drop in. Activities are suitable for anyone over 5 years old.

The museum will be looking to establish regular monthly openings of this nature; please check our What's On page for the latest dates. The next early opening is at 9am on June 9th.
