Sensory Day

Date: April 2, 2023

Enjoy a sensory-friendly experience with 200-million-year-old dinosaur tracks!

Come join us for a sensory-friendly experience from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm on April 2nd to celebrate Autism Awareness day.

Did you know about 1 in 44 children has been identified to have autism?

For many children and adults with autism, everyday things like bright lights, loud noises, and strong smells can cause sensory overload. Sensory overload is when the brain receives too many signals at once and can’t sort them out, which sends it into a panic as it tries to process all of the information.

We understand the lighting and activity in our museum can be a lot for some of our guests, so we’ll be dimming our lights, turning sound off on any videos, and having extra sensory toys available for play.

We invite anyone who experiences sensory overstimulation to enjoy a unique, quieter museum experience.
