Join us for our Sensory-Friendly Programs, an opportunity for adults and families to experience the museum with lowered volume and light levels. Sensory-Friendly Programs welcome anyone who can benefit from a low-sensory museum environment.

  • Access when the museum is closed to the general public
  • Advanced notice of what to expect during your visit 
  • Lowered sound and lighting in galleries and Sky Church
  • Access to museum galleries

Information about our Sensory-Friendly Events

  • We strongly recommend guests ages 3 and above to wear a face covering at all times. To learn more about our policies, please visit our COVID-19 Information Page
  • We send guests a social story, map of the museum, and timeline of the day to help them learn more about our MoPOP and what to expect at Sensory-Friendly Programs
  • In order to sustain this program and to support opportunities for future expansion, we are implementing a modest ticket fee beginning with the event on March 23rd.
  • To reduce barriers to attendance, there will be options for free access through Museums for All and MoPOP's Community Access Program. We are also offering a limited number of scholarship tickets for those who are not eligible for either of these programs, or for whom the new cost could be a barrier. Please let us know if you have any questions about how to access any of opportunities.
    • Please fill out this scholarship form after registering if you are applying for a scholarship.

The feeling of acceptance, the friendliness and interest of the staff, and the lack of crowds made the whole visit so much easier and less stressful.



Sensory Rating Cards

See sensory ratings for each MoPOP exhibition. These cards indicate the different types and levels of stimulation that you can expect in each space during regular museum hours (not during Sensory Friendly Programs).
