North Vancouver

Sensory Friendly Mornings offer neurodiverse individuals, their families and caregivers the ability to visit the museum two hours before scheduled opening. Visitors will enjoy a calm, relaxed atmosphere where they can take part in fun, safe activities with their own ‘bubble’.


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


As part of your visit you will have the use of a Discovery Pack. These packs contain some things that may help your visit:

  • Noise cancelling headphones (adjustable for ages 3-18)
  • Map of the museum space
  • Sensory fidget toys
  • Some fun activities to use during your visit


We are excited to be partnering with The North Vancouver Disability Resource Centre to bring their Mobile Sensory Unit (Snoezelen Van) to the next two events (May 1, May 29) as an addition to our programs. The van will be parked just outside the Museum in the Museum Muse laneway, ready to welcome visitors to its unique sensory experience. 


Due to the nature of this program, pre-booking is recommended. However refunds are available if things don’t work out on the day. (Please note: Due to recent changes in the public health orders, drop-ins for the event are also welcome.)
