Early Birds | Autism and the Science Museum

We were at the Science Museum early this morning.
And by early, I mean 8.30 am.
Every few months, the Museum hosts an Early Bird session for children with autism.
Imagine a scene from Night at the Museum.
Except that it wasn't night time.
And none of the exhibits came alive.
More's the pity.
The exhibition halls are empty.
The kiddos could actually see the exhibits.
It wasn't crowded at all.
No-one minded when a child ran around.
No-one minded when children bounced and flapped 
and generally expressed themselves in their own unique way.
In short, it was brilliant.
A* to the Science Museum.

Wish I'd know they did this when our son was younger! How much better and easier it must have been.
