Part of our Explore-Abilities Access Program, join us on Saturday, December 14, 2019 for an Explore-Abilities Morning – a sensory-friendly museum experience designed for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and sensory processing differences to have fun and enjoy interactive, hands-on learning in a safe and accessible facility!

Developed in conjunction with experts from Autism Learning Centre, Autism Manitoba, and On The Spectrum Therapy Services, this event features:
• Light and sound reductions in museum galleries
• Extra visual signage for safety
• A less crowded environment
• Designated quiet zones apart from the galleries
• Specialized equipment (i.e., UbiDuo 2-Way Communication Device, sunglasses, ear defenders, and fidget toys) available upon request
• Specially trained staff to complement your museum experience

In this very special Explore-Abilities Morning, experience the magic of the Eaton’s Fairytale Vignettes, and take a photo on your personal camera with our specially trained Sensitive Santa! This opportunity is available first come first served.

Note: The Children’s Museum opens to the general public at 9:30AM. Visitors are welcome to stay after this time, however lights, sounds, signage, and other Explore-Abilities elements/accommodations will return to regular operating levels at 9:30AM.

Registration is required for this event. Space is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.
