Au-Some Evening

October 14, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

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 a music center, therapy dogs, art projects and gross motor activities. Explore & More will also have a social narrative about the new museum and its play zones, quiet kits, as well as calming sensory-friendly spaces in the museum.

 October’s Au-Some Evening is going to be a Not So Spooky Halloween Bash and costumes are encouraged! Halloween bags will be distributed so families can participate in a quiet and low stress trick or treating experience, on each floor of the museum. The Art Studio will feature skeleton and spider art and the Tinkering Tank will have fun and “spooky” sensory play.  Plus, enjoy a visit with your favorite Superheroes! Supported by the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation. To register for the next Au-Some Evening, email us at [email protected]. 

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

Au-Some Evenings are also supported by J.M. McDonald Foundation, Maria Love Convalescent Fund, and Erie County
