Description: 

This is a free program for families with children who are five to twelve years of age and on the autism spectrum. Participants look at artwork in the museum’s galleries followed by an activity in a museum classroom. A quiet room is available throughout the session with blankets and sensory toys. While the needs of individuals with autism are taken into account for the design of this program, it is also intended to be fun for parents, siblings, and other relatives too!
