Museum experience provides sensory-friendly fun 

February 5, 2019

Manitoba Children’s Museum’s Explore-Abilities Morning is a sensory-friendly and interactive event happening on February 9, March 23 and June 1 from 8 am to 9:25 am. For just $5, people with autism and their accompanying family member or caregiver are welcome to attend.
Trained employees, smaller crowds, designated quiet zones, extra signage for safety, and lower sound and light in the galleries make for more comfortable experiences, offered in an accepting environment. Sensory-sensitive gear such as sunglasses, ear defenders, weighted lap pads, and fidget toys are available for the asking.
Note: The Children’s Museum opens to the general public at 9:30 am. Visitors are welcome to stay after this time, however, lights, sounds, signage, and other Explore-Abilities elements/accommodations will return to regular operating levels at 9:30 am. Registration is required for this event. Space is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.
