A sensory friendly experience at the Museum

Accessibility Mornings provides free access for families who would benefit from a sensory friendly experience and quieter setting at the Museum (downtown location only) an hour before opening to the general public. The Museum’s interactive art installations vary from high-sensory activities to designated sensory-break zones that provide a range of experiences for families to enjoy with comfort and safety. Join us on the second Saturday of each month in 2022 from 8:30-9:30am and stay for the day if desired! No registration required. Parking in the Museum garage is $5.

The Museum strives to be an inclusive and accessible space that celebrates neurodiversity and welcomes people of all needs and abilities. Learn more about our accessibility services at the Museum here. Plus, check out our digital Sensory Guide of the Museum before your visit!
