Sensory Monday at the Children’s Museum

October 4, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

FREE4

Join us for sensory-friendly museum play every first Monday of the month through May!

This event’s admission is half off ($4), thanks to our generous sponsor, Golden Heart Community Foundation!

Our goal is to offer children with special needs and sensory processing differences the opportunity to visit the museum in a much more intimate environment.

Sensory-friendly events will be an exclusive museum time designated for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other sensory processing needs to have a fun, enjoyable and interactive learning experience in a comfortable and more peaceful play environment with the whole family. This event is also designed for children with other special/medical needs who might desire a relaxed play environment. Prior to opening, the museum staff will lower the lights and sound and determine appropriate textures to put in the Imagineering lab for play.

Museum modifications:
– Less crowded environment
– Light and sound reduction
– Extra visual safety signage
– Designated quiet rooms

FCM will provide the following:
– ear defenders for overstimulating sounds (headphones)
– weighted lap pads (blankets)
– weighted vests

There is a Museum Social Story and a Scavenger Hunt also available!

Sensory Friendly Mondays are made possible by a grant from the Golden Heart Community Foundation, an Affiliate of The Alaska Community Foundation
