Sensory Sundays

Children on the autism spectrum and their families can visit the museum during Sensory Sundays, the second Sunday of each month from 10am – 12pm. They will have the opportunity to have a fun, enjoyable and interactive learning experience in a comfortable and accepting environment! This exclusive free event includes modifications of a less crowded environment and light and sound reduction.
