Sensory Accommodations

We recognize that the museum can get loud! We offer sensory bags at the front desk that include headphones, gloves, sunglasses, and other items. If your child needs a quieter spot, or a more focused activity, visit these spots:

  • Craft room

  • Makerspace

  • Quiet room – for guests 3 years old or younger

 

To plan your visit at a quieter time, the museum is typically quiet on school weekdays in the afternoon.

A social storybook is available to prepare children for their visits and show what it's like to visit the museum. Download a PDF of this book.
