In partnership with New Mexico Autism Society, Explora is offering Sensory-Friendly Hours. Regular admission fees apply. To encourage a sensory-friendly environment, we’re limiting attendance to 150 people. Please register by 5pm the day before the event by calling 505-224-8300.
During these sensory-friendly hours, individuals and families can enjoy a less sensory-stimulating visit.
Before your visit, you can view, download, and print a PDF of the Sensory Map of Explora, the Social Story, and/or the Visual Schedule, just by clicking the underlined names below.
Tools are available for use at Explora, and are being upgraded in consultation with our partners and visitors, so you may see changes from time to time.
Explora offers several sensory-friendly tools. Items will be available on a table near the entrance during sensory-friendly hours and at the admissions desks during general admission hours.
