Discovery Days: Sensory Friendly
Museums can be overwhelming and overstimulating for anyone. The Bakken Museum has partnered with the Autism Society of Minnesota to adjust the museum experience and develop programming with a focus on sensory processing differences. Join us on Saturday, May 25, for Discovery Days: Sensory Friendly and enjoy the museum in a comfortable accepting environment.
Activities and accommodations will include:
- Lowered volume on interactive exhibits
- Dimmed lights throughout the museum
- Additional sensory-aware signage throughout the museum
- Noise-dampening headphones
- Music therapy
Additional information to plan a trip can be found on the museum’s Accessibility and Amenities webpage (thebakken.org/accessibility).
Cost: All activities are free with museum admission ($10 adults, $8 seniors 62+, $8 ages 12-24, $5 ages 4-12, free for children 3 and under and members of The Bakken Museum). Free parking is available both in the museum's lot on Zenith Avenue South, and on West 36th Street. The Bakken Museum is wheelchair accessible.
