Sensory-Friendly Saturday

Sensory-Friendly Saturday

Individuals on the autism spectrum or with sensory processing disorder and their families are invited to join us for early access to the Museum and a variety of creative and accessible activities that will explore the fun world of color.

Created in conjunction with local families and occupational therapists, this inclusive and accessible program strives to provide a welcoming experience through offering: 

  • Reduced crowding and noise 
  • Pre-visit social stories 
  • Activities to meet a variety of sensory needs 
  • Hands-on art activities for all developmental levels  
  • On-hand support of skilled and friendly volunteers 
  • Sensory regulation resources such as fidgets, noise-canceling headphones, sunglasses, and a sensory break area 

This program welcomes participants of all ages and their families (siblings welcome!).  

The event is scheduled from 9–10:30 a.m., with three half-hour timeslots to spread out the number of people in the galleries. Choose your timeslot here:
