Sensory Sensitive Science Hours

Sun., July 21 and
Sun., Aug. 11
9 am–Noon

Sensory Sensitive Science Hours are held on select Sunday mornings. Exhibit lights and sound effects are adjusted and special hands-on activities are added to foster a safe, welcoming, and most of all, fun, environment for all visitors. Whenever possible, low-sensory versions of shows and demonstrations are hosted by Buhl Planetarium, Demonstration Theaters, or other departments. Early entry is also offered on these days, to provide reduced wait times and a calmer entry experience. A Quiet Space is available during Sensory Sensitive events for visitors who need to take a break.

Enjoy a self-guided museum visit including sensory-friendly demos and hands-on activities, adjusted exhibit lights and sound effects throughout the museum, and special guests! View the Adventure Guide opens in a new window to help prepare for a stress-free visit. A Quiet Room is available for use during Sensory Hours; sensory backpacks are always available to borrow free of charge (at the Admissions Desk and in our Theaters spaces).

No advance registration or special ticketing is required to attend our Sensory Sensitive Science Hours.
