Sensory Hour in the Museum
We are proud to open our Museum doors with our lights dimmed, minimal sounds, and a relaxed atmosphere. Sensory Hour is an event for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and/or Sensory Processing sensitivities and their families to experience the Museum at their own pace. Our goal is to make Sensory Hour a comfortable environment for individuals with a variety of sensory differences. Our staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you have, and if necessary, direct you to a quiet space that provides a chance to cool down and take a break. Families are welcome to stay the remainder of the day to explore the rest of the Park. Participants are always welcome to bring their own fidgets, ear protection, and other sensory resources to the Park. This program is free, however pre-registration is required and space is limited.
