Exploring Our Way

Sensory Friendly Playtime

EOW Studio Families 01

For some children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders, a visit to museums like ours is challenging or over-stimulating. The Exploring Our Way: Sensory Friendly Playtimes are exclusive to families of children with special needs. These FREE monthly, low-sensory events are designed for children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders allowing them to explore the Museum along with their families without the noise, crowds, and stimulation of a typical day.

Exploring Our Way
Wednesday, October 5, 1-4pm >>

While the museum is open (with regular admission) to the public during this Exploring Our Way, we limit the number of families who can attend, turn down sounds and lights, provide a quiet zone with sensory activities away from the exhibit floor and have noise cancelling headphones to borrow. A medical diagnosis is not required, but online pre-registration is.

EVENING Exploring Our Way
Friday, November 18, 3-6pm >>

While the museum is open (with regular admission) until 4pm on this day, beginning at 3pm we turn down sounds and lights, provide a quiet zone with sensory activities away from the exhibit floor, and have noise cancelling headphones to borrow. A medical diagnosis is not required, but online pre-registration is.
