Sensory Friendly Days

Monday, Dec 11, 2023

9:00 am – 10:00 am

The Connecticut River Museum is proud to host Sensory-Friendly Hours. Reserve your space today! Thanks to a generous grant from The Petit Family Foundation, we are able to offer sensory friendly items during the visit, including beanbag chairs and fidget toys.

Exhibits with loud noises and/or bright lights are modified to allow people with a range of abilities to experience all the Museum has to offer. A designated quiet room is set up for the duration of the event to allow visitors to decompress, take a break, and experience the Museum at their own pace.

Preview guides and materials for families to read together before visiting are available below. To reserve your spot please click here. For more information, please email Public Programs and Education Manager August Stromberger at
