Experience science and discovery at the Museum’s Naturalist Center during Sensory-friendly Mornings. Join us for this unique opportunity to gain hands-on access to specimens that are typically behind glass or in collection cabinets. Learn from educators and engage with a selection of specimens such as mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds and insects. Explore at your own pace in an accessible and inclusive environment that offers modifications to sound and lighting, noise-canceling headsets and a “cool down” area with sensory fidget items. Available on the first and third Mondays of each month.
