Sensory Friendly Afternoons restart at Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh beginning Tuesday, June 14
Sensory friendly afternoons will take place on the second Tuesday of every month
Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh is happy to announce the return of our monthly Sensory Friendly Afternoons beginning Tuesday, June 14, 2022. Sensory Friendly Afternoons will take place on the second Tuesday of every month from 1:00 – 5:00 pm
Children with autism spectrum disorders and sensory sensitivities can enjoy a fun, friendly experience in a comfortable and accepting environment. Lights and sounds in spaces throughout the museum are turned down, and we provide designated quiet areas where families can take a break. Sensory Kits with noise-canceling headphones, sunglasses, an assortment of fidgets and other items are available upon request.
“We’re delighted to bring monthly Sensory Friendly Afternoons back to Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh,” said Danielle Linzer, Senior Director of Education, Learning and Research at the Children’s Museum. “With quiet spaces, exhibit modifications, sensory kits and trained facilitators, these afternoons are designed to welcome families with a range of sensory needs and preferences to the museum.”
Regular admission rates apply during Sensory Friendly Afternoons.
While the Children’s Museum and MuseumLab currently require masks indoors for visitors ages 2+, medical and sensory exemptions for mask-wearing are available during Sensory Friendly Afternoons. If you have any concerns or would like to request further accommodations, please contact email@example.com.
To request a medical exemption for all other times, please contact the Children’s Museum. To learn more about our current health and safety policies, visit pittsburghkids.org/about/covid-safety.
