Sensory Friendly Sundays

At the Science Museum, we know that all visitors learn differently. During Sensory Friendly hours, individuals and families can enjoy a quieter, less sensory-stimulating museum experience.

On the first Sunday of the month, the Science Museum hosts Sensory Friendly Sunday, where visitors who learn best in a calmer environment can experience a lights-up, sound-down Omnitheater show at 10 a.m. 

Ticket prices range from $8.95 to $9.95. Discounts are available for individuals, families, and groups with limited incomes. Admission is free for working Personal Care Attendants when they’re visiting with a client. 

This program was created in consultation with the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM)  

We have a variety of tools available to help our visitors with sensory issues make the most of their visit. Ask at the Exhibits Entrance for sound dampening headphones, a timer, or a kit containing headphones, fidgets, gloves, and sunglasses.
