This event is exclusively for families with children experiencing disabilities from 5:30-7 p.m. These low sensory play times are calmer, less crowded, and a great way to habituate your child to the Museum’s exhibits under minimal stress. Thanks to @factoregon, @autismsocietyor, and Swindells Resource Center for their support.
