*. As the community grows with people with autism and sensory needs, Family Museum is committed to providing accessible options for all visitors.
The team implemented Special Needs Nights after their 2019, Certified Autism Center(tm), which included training in how to better understand autistic visitors and provide services. These are scheduled nights where there is a limit on the number of people who visit the museum and the museum uses lower levels of light and sound for people with sensory sensitivities. You can also find sensory kits at the museum. Quiet areas are available for those who need to be away from the bustling museum.
