Sensory Friendly Sundays

Dec 15, 2019 | 9 AM - 11 AM


Enjoy the aquarium two hours before the public for a sensory friendly underwater journey. We welcome all families with children on the autism spectrum or children with sensory processing disorders to this event. 

The aquarium has been adjusted to best reduce sensory triggers throughout each exhibit of the aquarium. We have also created a safe place or comfort room, which can be utilized at any time. 

Feel free to download our Sensory Guide here to plan ahead for your visit. We hope to SEA you then!
