Low-Sensory Mondays

First Monday of every month from 2 – 5 PM
We embrace the unique qualities of all who walk through our doors and appreciate that many visitors need to explore the Museum in different ways. For individuals and families who prefer a quiet, less sensory-stimulating environment we offer Low-Sensory Mondays on the first Monday afternoon of every month. At each event, loud gallery sounds and bright lights are turned down and attendance is limited. Fidget bags will be available for checkout.
