Sensory Friendly Sundays 

Our goal is to offer children with special needs and sensory processing differences the opportunity to visit the Museum in a much more intimate environment. Sensory-friendly Museum time is designated to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), different processing needs, as well as children with special / medical requirements to have a fun, enjoyable and interactive experience in a comfortable and peaceful space. Prior to opening, the Museum staff will lower the lights and sound, and determine appropriate textures to add to the Imagineering Lab.
