Sensory Friendly Morning
July 24 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Museums are for everyone! Our Sensory Friendly Mornings are for people with autism and other sensory processing disorders, their families, and any visitor who wants a more relaxed museum experience, no matter their age and ability level.
At this free event, you’ll have access to the museum and the opportunity to take a sensory-friendly submarine tour. Loud exhibit noises will be turned down and our Sensory Backpacks will be out! These backpacks include: visual schedules, weighted lap blanket, social narrative, headphones, fidgets and a communication book. They’re also free to check out.
The Wisconsin Maritime Museum welcomes all people to connect with Wisconsin’s waterways. The Education Department is committed to providing inclusive and engaging experiences for visitors of all abilities. For more information, please contact Sydnee Hammond at SHammond@wisconsinmaritime.org.
