Sensory Friendly Hours (Evening)

Sensory Friendly Hours are a time for families to enjoy a less-crowded visit to the Montshire. Sensory Friendly Hours may be appealing to individuals with autism spectrum disorder or who have sensory processing differences.

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 narrative and visual planner

During 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.

Made possible with support from the Keller family.
