The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, NN is now offering Sensory Friendly Sundays (free of charge) from 8:00am to 11:00am on the second Sunday of every month. Walk-ins are okay, but you're encouraged to reserve a spot if possible.
Starting in December 2018, Sensory Friendly Sunday will be moved to the second Sunday of each month.
Sensory Friendly Sunday is a monthly event designed for kids, teens, and adults with sensory processing differences, autism spectrum disorder, or developmental disabilities. The galleries will be closed to the general public, allowing visitors to enjoy the museum in a calm environment with accommodations such as quiet spaces, noise-canceling headphones, and sunglasses available. Experience the Walker’s exhibitions, participate in a new art-making activity, or watch a short film.
While walk-ins are welcome, we encourage you to reserve your space ahead of time. Registration is available below.
