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. While this event is designed as a sensory friendly event for members of the autism spectrum disorder community, anyone with special needs is invited to attend!
