Sensory Friendly HMNS

Sensory Friendly Events

Three times a year, HMNS offers Sensory Friendly events where exhibits and venues are modified for those with sensory sensitivities. Exhibits and venues are modified to create a sensory neutral environment. The Burke Baker Planetarium and Wortham Giant Screen Theatre also offer modified 2D shows with house lights on and the volume reduced.


2018 Dates:

April 28, 2018, 8 a.m.–10 a.m.

September 15, 2018, 8 a.m.–10 a.m.

December 3, 2018, 9 a.m.–5 p.m.

Tickets for Sensory Friendly Events are the same price as regular operating hours. As always, HMNS members will receive free admission to the permanent exhibit halls and discounted admission to all special venues. Visit our membership page for more information on joining the HMNS member family.
