We are dedicated to removing barriers between individuals and science learning. Low-Sensory Early Exploration are free events where guests can explore featured exhibits in a less crowded and more sensory-friendly environment. 

Plus, the entire Museum will be altered to be more sensory-friendly until noon. On these days we'll offer additional accommodations including a designated quiet space.

We'll also provide extra exhibits or programs for exploration during the morning event.
