September Sensory Friendly Saturday

This monthly series provides a welcoming and accessible environment for individuals, families, and children who have sensory sensitivities. Experience our Minnesota Journeys gallery, The temporary exhibit Wicked Plants, the Touch & See Lab, and a brief planetarium show, touring our solar system, at 8:45 am—all with lowered lighting, quieter sounds, and fewer visitors.

Sensory-friendly resources
Visitors are welcome to check out additional resources like the quiet spaces, visual timers, weighted lap pads, and hearing protection if it helps make the visit more enjoyable, and a social narrative is available for download to prepare for your visit.
