Sensory-Friendly Hour at the National Museum of the Great Lakes

The National Museum of the Great Lakes has recently received their designation as a Certified Autism Center and has been involved in community initiatives to provide sensory friendly activities within their purview.

Sensory Offerings
In addition to their CAC designation, NMGL has an ongoing partnership with Spectrum Sailing, which provides maritime education, programming, and outreach for individuals with autism. The museum helps promote their program and offers their members a chance to join.

They are also now offering an inclusive and serene environment for families and individuals with sensory sensitivities to explore and enjoy their exhibits during Sensory Friendly Mornings! During Sensory Friendly Mornings, visitors can expect: Limited crowds to ensure a peaceful visit, dim lighting for a calming ambiance, and reduced or eliminated exhibit sounds to minimize auditory stimulation. This year, Sensory Friendly Mornings will be available on select Saturdays including April 20, June 22, September 21, and December 14, from 9-10 a.m.
