Low Sensory Morning


Offered every other month
9-10:30 a.m. | FREE

Check in at the Welcome Table in Bloch Lobby.
We invite participants into the museum an hour before we open to the public in order to provide a quiet and low-stimulating environment where you can enjoy hands-on artmaking activities and art in the galleries. Visual resources, hand fidgets, a low sensory break room and other accommodations will be provided. This is an activity for families and care partners with children with autism or who have sensory sensitivities.

*Please use Bloch Lobby & Bloch Plaza Entrances. Parking in the museum garage is $14. Museum members park FREE. In preparation for the event, you can find our Social Story as well as details about accessibility and equipment HERE
