At the Science Museum, we know that all visitors learn differently. During Sensory Friendly hours, individuals and families can enjoy a quieter, less sensory-stimulating museum experience.
On the third Sunday of the month, the Science Museum will host Sensory Friendly Sunday, where visitors who learn best in a calmer environment can experience our exhibits and movie in a less-crowded museum.
See a lights-up, sound-down Omnitheater show at 9 a.m., visit the exhibit galleries before they open to the public, retreat to a designated quiet space to relax and recharge, and enjoy lighter crowds. And don’t forget to take advantage of the features we offer to visitors every day to foster a positive learning environment.
Ticket prices range from $8.95 to $24.95. Discounts are available for individuals, families, and groups with limited incomes. Admission is free for working Personal Care Attendants when they’re visiting with a client. Learn more.
This program was created in consultation with the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM)
