Sensory Friendly Sunday

December 2, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Franklin Institute can sometimes seem a little overwhelming.  It can be crowded, loud, and bright.  That’s why we are pleased to offer Sensory-Friendly Sunday.

It is our goal to make Sensory-Friendly Sunday a comfortable environment for kids and adults with a variety of sensory differences.  On Sensory-Friendly Sunday, our exhibits will be modified to provide an opportunity to experience all The Franklin Institute has to offer for people on the autism spectrum and with a range of differing abilities.  Our trained staff and volunteers will be on hand to answer any questions you have and, if necessary, direct you to a quiet space that provides a chance to cool down and take a break.

Complimentary admission is available for pre-registered guests, as well as for guests arriving between 8:00am and 9:30am. Pre-registration closes at 5:00pm on the Thursday before the event.

Ticket Prices:

Free with Preregistration, and for guests arriving between 8-9am on the day of the event. Regular museum rates apply after 9:30 am unless pre-registered.
