Join us for a morning at the Museum for adults and children on the autism spectrum and their friends, families and caregivers. The Museum will be open from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. for visitors to explore at their own pace in a peaceful and less-crowded environment.

In addition, a separate quiet space will be available to decompress or desensitize, if needed. All members of the autism spectrum disorder community are invited to attend.

Event includes

  • Access to the permanent natural history exhibits and Discovery Zone
  • Sensory maps with rules and expectations
  • Quiet area in a Museum classroom
  • Volunteers and staff in the exhibits to provide assistance

While the event activities are free, there is an admission charge for the Permian Monsters exhibit. The Butterfly Rainforest exhibit will be closed that morning and open at 1 p.m.
