Join us for a morning of exploration at the Museum! Adults and children on the autism spectrum, including their friends, families and caregivers, are invited to explore the Museum at their own pace in a peaceful and less-crowded environment.

In addition, a separate quiet space will be available to decompress or desensitize, as needed. All members of the Autism Spectrum Disorder Community are invited to attend this sensory-friendly event.

Event includes

  • Access to the permanent natural history exhibits, Discovery Zone and The Scoop on Poop!
  • Sensory maps with rules and expectations
  • Quiet area in a museum classroom
  • Volunteers and staff in the exhibits to provide assistance
