Museums can be overwhelming and overstimulating for anyone.

Join us on the second Sunday of each month for new activities and adapted exhibit experiences.

Activities and accommodations will include:

– Lowered volume on interactive exhibits

– Additional sensory-aware signage throughout the museum

– Noise-dampening headphones

All activities are free with museum admission:
Adults: $10
Seniors: $8
Young People 13–24: $8
Children 4–12: $5
Children 3 and under: Free
Members: Free
