For parents of children with sensory sensitivity, finding times for the whole family to play without stress can be difficult. But, Sensory-Free Night, a low-stimulus evening for children with sensory sensitivities,  hopes to provide fun and discovery for everyone at the Museum!

The event offers children with sensory sensitivity and their families exclusive time in the Museum with a low-sensory environment that otherwise might not be possible during regular operational hours. During this time, overhead announcements, food smells and other sensory inputs will be limited as much as possible. This low-sensory evening takes place the first Thursday of each month.

“Sensory-Free Night provides children with sensory processing issues and their families a way to enjoy all of the magical fun of Creative Discovery Museum in a safe, sensory friendly environment,” said Jayne Griffin, director of education for the Museum. “During Sensory-Free Night, the Museum offers exhibits and programs that provide special and unique experiences for children who may need a few accommodations to fully enjoy fun activities.”

There is no admission cost for Sensory-Free Nights, but reservations are required. In an effort to provide a sensory-friendly environment, admission will be capped at 100 guests. Online reservations are available.
