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.
This month’s Au-Some Evening is particularly special for us as we celebrate the life of Sara Rogers, our dear teacher, and friend who left this world too soon.
In honor of Miss Sara we will have scarves and maracas for everyone to take home and keep her playful, musical spirit with them. We’ll also have musical instruments available for children to play, a parachute on the Terrace (weather permitting), and videos and music of Sara to sing along to in the Tinkering Tank.
