Carnegie Museum of Natural History: Sensory Friendly Hours

During Sensory Friendly Hours, the museum will open its galleries at 8:30 a.m., 90 minutes before the museum opens to the general public. Families with members on the autism spectrum or who otherwise easily experience sensory overload are welcome to visit the museum for a quieter experience in a more controlled environment.

Museum experts will give tours of the exhibitions and be on hand to answer questions throughout the morning. Designated quiet zones will allow visitors to decompress and experience the museum at their own pace.

To provide the most sensory-friendly environment possible, advance registration is required for Sensory Friendly Saturday.
