Sensory Friendly Sunday is a monthly, free event for kids, teens, and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder or sensory sensitivities and their families, offering the opportunity to make art together, explore the galleries, watch a short film, or just hang out in a different setting.
Over the past few months, the Walker has been working with a range of community partners to provide the Twin Cities with the first art-focused, sensory friendly program in a museum. The galleries will be closed to all other visitors, allowing guests to enjoy the museum in a safe environment where accommodations such as quiet spaces, headphones, and fidgets can be provided.
While walk-ins are welcome, we encourage you to reserve your space ahead of time. Registration is available below.
To prepare for your visit, check out the Social Narrative. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 612-375-7610. This program was created in consultation with the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) and the University of Minnesota’s Occupational Therapy Program.
