Sensory Friendly Family Night









Sensory Friendly Family Nights are monthly events that have been created to provide a comfortable, enjoyable experience of the museum for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families.  Sensory Friendly Family Nights are free of charge and are held after museum hours in order to provide children with Autism Spectrum Disorders full access to all exhibits and materials.  These events are two hours and include an art activity facilitated by a Registered Art Therapist, a music table hosted by a music teacher and availability of TCARD (Tulane Center for Autism and Related Disorders) staff for parents who may have questions or concerns about their children.  Each event includes a resource table with service providers and events related to the Autism community of greater New Orleans.  Quiet spaces are available in the Theatre on the first floor and the birthday party rooms on the top floor.
