Special Events for all Ages

Here at the museum we offer programming throughout the year for friends, siblings, and families to create new memories together all season long.
Love of learning starts here!

 

Low Sensory Evenings
Wednesday, January 8, 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.
