au-some evenings

We are so pleased to announce the return of our in-person Au-Some Evenings on Friday, August 14th from 5-8 p.m. Things may be a little different as we have enhanced safety measures in place (read everything you need to know before you visit here) and are asking that visitors reserve their space ahead of time, due to capacity restrictions we will not be able to accept walk-in visitors.

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.
