Springfield Museums, Sensory Friendly Saturday

September 10 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am EDT

Sensory Friendly Saturdays provide less noise, less bright light, and cool-down spaces for those who have sensory sensitivity.

The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum and the Springfield Science Museum will open early, with some exhibits will be modified to provide an opportunity for people with a range of differing abilities to experience what these Museums have to offer. Our trained staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you have and, if necessary, direct you to a quiet space that provides a chance to cool down and take a break. Sensory-friendly crafts for all ages will be available in the Cat’s Corner.

If visitors find the Museums too overwhelming and need to leave before 10 am, the Welcome Center staff will give the family a voucher to try again on another Sensory Friendly Saturday.
