Sensory-Friendly and Access Mornings

Self-directed, drop-in sessions are offered October through April and are opportunities for families and adults who experience a range of developmental and physical disabilities and those on the autism spectrum to visit the museum when it is closed to the general public. A safe space is available, and an adult must accompany visitors under age 18.

Sensory-Friendly and Access Mornings are $5 per family or group. Advance registration is appreciated, but same day registration is available if paying by credit card.
