Sensory-Friendly Sunsets - the First Tuesday of Every Month

Sensory-Friendly SunsetsJoin us on the first Tuesday of each month for a family-orientated evening of special sensory-friendly experiences for children and adults with sensory sensitivities in a calming and inclusive environment. 

In this after-hours program, lighting and sounds in the Museum will be altered to reduce external stimuli and a several sensory-friendly activities will be made available for families to engage with on your own terms. Activities include the following:

  • Hands-on-Heritage: children will be encouraged to touch and match objects made of different materials
  • Play Zone: self-directed play area with a variety of tactile toys and activities to choose from.
  • Quiet Zone: a place to relax and be calm, with blankets, large stuffed animals, and grounding observation activities.
