Sensory-Friendly and Access Mornings
Self-directed, drop-in sessions are offered monthly 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 a specific museum gallery when the museum is closed to the general public. Museum staff help facilitate and support visitors with opportunities for close looking and tactile activities specifically designed for these sessions. 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.

Though these opportunities are created by museum staff for certain times, visitors experiencing sensory sensitivities and disabilities may visit the museum anytime during open hours for independent exploration.
