Gear up for an extraordinary and exclusive experience at our Sensory Friendly Day! This is not just a museum visit; it's a fantastic escape from the sensory overload, specially designed for children with autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing disorder, and various learning differences, along with their families. Get ready for a private event that transforms the museum into a haven of comfort and enjoyment! This exclusive event include the following modifications:

  • Light and sound reduction (dimmed lights, limited extra sounds and no distracting motions)
  • Extra visual signage for safety (to help visitors determine things not to climb on and where to stop and wait for an adult before continuing)
  • Less crowded environment free from unnecessary distractions
  • Ear defenders and sunglasses available on loan
  • Designated quiet rooms
  • Families are allowed to bring in outside food and drinks (Fresh Café will be closed)

SPECIAL EVENTS:

Faithful Paws: Experience unconditional love and furry comfort with trained therapy pets.

Event Time: 10 am to noon in Tree Top

Rising Stars ABA: Learn more about Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) as you interact with sensory activities.

Event Time: 10 am to 1 pm in New Kids' Hall
