The Connecticut River Museum will celebrate National Autism Awareness Month this April by announcing the launch of its new Sensory Friendly Hours program. The museum is committed to broadening its reach and deepening its impact throughout the community. The museum will open its galleries from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm on three Mondays in 2022, days that it is not open to the general public, and will limit the number of visitors to ensure a calm environment.

Exhibits with loud noises and/or bright lights will be modified to allow people with a range of differing abilities to experience all the museum has to offer. A designated quiet room will be set up for the duration of the event to allow visitors to decompress, take a break, and experience the museum at their own pace. Parents and caregivers must stay with their children at all times.

The Connecticut River Museum is committed to ensuring our programming is accessible to all people. Preview guides and materials for families to read together before visiting are available on our website. To reserve your spot or for more information, please visit ctrivermuseum.org.
