Sensory Friendly Morning

CMOP recognizes the increasing need for families with children with developmental disabilities to have an accessible and enjoyable place to learn and play with relief from extra stimuli. To help meet this need, CMOP will offer a Sensory Friendly Morning at the Museum on the second Wednesday of each month from 9:00am-12:00pm. Children can experience the Museum with dimmed lights, reduced ambient noise, a less crowded environment, and they will be able to retreat into a designated quiet room if needed. CMOP’s goal is for children with sensory processing difficulties to feel welcome and have a positive experience while they explore the Museum.

The SD Gunner Fund partners with the Museum in coordinating service dogs to visit the children during SFM days.

Please note: Field trips and special events will not be scheduled on this day to limit admission into the Museum.
