Our Sensory Friendly mornings run once a month from 10:00am to 12:00pm, before our regular opening time. Families, caregivers and individuals can visit the museum in a calm, relaxed atmosphere and take part in fun, safe activities with their own ‘bubble’.

We are also thrilled to be partnering with the North Shore Disability Resource Centre to present their Mobile Multi Sensory Room. 

From the NSDRC website: “Multi-sensory environments (sometimes referred to as Snoezelen® Rooms*) are safe, relaxing spaces, designed to stimulate the senses to bring peace, calm, and wellness. Appropriate for all ages and abilities, the NSDRC’s Mobile Multi-sensory Room can be customized with a multi-sensory or single-sensory focus. Gentle light, soothing sound, relaxing smells, and touch can calm those feeling agitated and anxious; exciting visuals, music, sounds and touch can engage and stimulate those feeling disconnected and withdrawn.”

During this program, adaptations will be made to the exhibits, such as lowered lighting and sound adjustments to enable a more relaxed visit. A quiet space will also be available for visitors who need a break.

Noise cancelling headphones (adjustable for ages 3-18) are available for use during your visit. We also have our ‘Discovery packs’ available that contain some things to make your visit more enjoyable including:

Map of the museum space.
Sensory fidget toys
Some fun activities to use during your visit.
