From 11am - 1pm on Sunday, June 5th and Sunday, August 7th, the Museum will offer a sensory friendly experience for visitors with sensory sensitivities. Enjoy The Children’s Museum of Wilmington during exclusive hours designed for children with special sensory, developmental, or physical needs. Explore the Museum in a comfortable and accepting environment that features fewer guests, adjusted exhibits, light and sound reduction, extra visual safety signage, sound maps, and designated calming spaces.
Sensory Bags are available for check out at the Front Desk which include sound canceling headphones, communication cards, sunglasses, and fidget and calming toys.
Designated quiet spaces will be the Calming Cave in the Nurture Nook and the Bonus Room where curtains will be closed, lights will be off, and bean bags and weighted blankets will be available.
More information coming soon!
