For some children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders, a visit to museums like ours is challenging or over-stimulating. The Exploring Our Way: Sensory Friendly Playtimes are exclusive to families of children with special needs. These monthly, low-sensory events are designed for children with autism spectrum or sensory processing disorders allowing them to explore the Museum along with their families without the noise, crowds, and stimulation of a typical open day.

We limit the number of families who can attend, turn down sounds and lights, provide a quiet zone with sensory activities away from the exhibit floor and have noise cancelling headphones to borrow. A medical diagnosis is not required. Regular admission rates apply and pre-registration is required.

Masks are optional for everyone during Exploring Our Way.

If you are a Museum Member: Please first "Register" and then "Sign-in" in the upper hand corner of this page. You only have to register once. When registering for this site, please use the same name and email you used when you signed up for a Membership. Then add your ticket types (Adult, Child, Child under 1, or Senior) to your cart. Your member discount will appear when you view your cart (if your discount doesn't appear, please email us at questions@childrens-museum.org). Please remember to bring your membership card when visiting.

If you have a discount of any kind besides a CMNH Membership (see here for discount information) such as Library passes, EBT cardholders, or Military: Choose the "Discount" options (Adult w/discount, Child w/discount, Senior w/discount) below and we will process your admission, with proof of discount, when you arrive at the museum. EXCEPTION: If you see a promo code on your pass/flyer, choose the Adult, Child, Senior price types below - not "Adult w/discount" etc., then add the promo code when you get to the shopping cart.

Please choose the appropriate price types below, and reserve for the exact number of people visiting (in other words, don't just reserve one spot for yourself. We use these reservations to help with our capacity limits). We are only allowing 75 individuals to visit the museum during this play session.
