Low Sensory Evenings
Wednesday, December 4, 5:30-7:30pm

Low Sensory Evenings are a special time just for kids with sensory sensitivities to visit the museum. We’re limiting attendance and turning down the ambient noise and light to provide an even more inviting place to explore, play, and learn. These evenings are especially appropriate for children with autism and/or Sensory Processing Disorder, but Low Sensory Evenings are open to children with any type of special need and their families.

Free. Pre-registration required. Tickets are limited to keep noise levels low.

Dinner and Dancing: City Opera Ballet
Saturday, December 7, 5:45-8:00pm

Experience the magic and joy of ballet as City Opera Ballet performs The Nutcracker live! Enjoy dinner and participate in a dance workshop, plus end the night by playing in the museum with the performers!

Advance Tickets: $10/member, $15/nonmember
At the Door (as space allows): $12/member, $17/nonmember
