Sensory-Friendly Hours, Resources, and Camps

Explora, in partnership with the NM Autism Society, offers several sensory-friendly activities throughout the months of April and May.

Sensory-Friendly Hours

Sunday, April 14, 2019 – 10am–noon

During these sensory-friendly hours, individuals and families can enjoy a less sensory-stimulating visit.

  • Sensory-Friendly Entrance: an entrance that bypasses the store and admissions desk.
  • Sensory Spaces: quiet, low-light rooms upstairs and downstairs available to take a break from the exhibit floor.
  • Museum Toolkits: resources co-developed with NM Autism Society, like social stories, fidgets, visual schedules, and more.

Regular admission fees apply to Sensory-Friendly Hours.
