What's Happening at the Montshire

Enjoy a fun and interactive learning experience in a comfortable and welcoming environment!

Sensory Friendly Hours (Morning)

Come enjoy a fun and interactive learning experience in a comfortable and welcoming environment!

During these hours, the Montshire will offer:

  • Less crowded environment
  • Reduced sound from select exhibits
  • Quiet, respite space with sensory materials
  • Pre-visit information, including social narratives, a sensory map, and a checklist

Sensory Friendly Hours will take place on:

  • Saturday, February 8, 2020: 9-10am (Visitors are welcome to stay for the day. However, the galleries will open to the general public at 10am, so some accommodations will not be available after 10.)
  • Thursday, April 2, 2020: 5:30-7pm

During these Sensory Friendly Hours—and every day—visitors can check out sensory supplies at the admissions desk. We offer noise cancelling headphones, a weighted lap pad, manipulative fidgets, stuffies, timers, and therapy balls.
