Explore-Abilities Evening: A Sensory-Friendly Museum Event

Date: Thursday, December 16, 2021
Time: 5:00PM – 7:00PM
Location: Children’s Museum, 45 Forks Market Road

Part of our Explore-Abilities Access Program, join us on Thursday, December 16, 2021 for an Explore-Abilities Evening – a sensory-friendly museum experience designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and sensory processing differences to have fun and enjoy interactive, hands-on learning in a safe and accessible facility!

Developed in conjunction with experts from Autism Learning Centre, Autism Manitoba, and On The Spectrum Therapy Services, this event features:

  • Light and sound reductions in museum galleries
  • Extra visual signage for safety
  • A less crowded environment
  • Designated quiet zones apart from the galleries
  • Specialized equipment (i.e., UbiDuo 2-Way Communication Device, sunglasses, ear defenders, fidget toys, and Braille Visitor Information Brochures in English and French) available upon request
  • Specially trained staff to complement your museum experience
