Sensory Saturdays

About this recurring event

Two children sit around a sandbox, using molds to make shapes. An adult crouches down to their level.

On Sensory Saturdays, from 9–10am, enjoy a sensory-friendly morning. The Crown Family PlayLab is geared toward young children, but you'll find many opportunities for children of all ages to learn and create through hands-on exploration with tactile opportunities and sensory tools.

This accessible event is designed for people with autism and other sensory processing needs. (Siblings, family members, and caregivers are also welcome.) It is free with museum admission and advance registration, but space is limited to 40 guests so that families can enjoy a crowd-free space.
