Sensory Sensitive Science Hours

Sun., Dec. 10
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 with sensory-friendly demos, adjusted exhibit lights and sound effects, and special guests! View the Adventure Guide opens in a new window to help prepare for a stress-free visit, and quiet areas and sensory backpacks are always available.
