Au-Some Evening

September 9, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Once a month, our special Au-Some Evenings give children with autism spectrum disorder and sensory processing disorder, their friends and family an opportunity to play and learn together in an understanding and supportive environment. Families will have access to the museum space and play zones, including our cafe. Featured activities include therapy dogs, “Back to School” themed art projects and the Imagination Playground. Explore & More will also have quiet kits, as well as calming sensory-friendly spaces in the museum.

Special “Back to School” giveaways will be provided for children that attend.

Au-Some Evenings are brought to us through the generous support of Mother Cabrini Health Foundation.
