Access Mornings @ MoMI
Join us the first Saturday of each month (October–June) for exclusive Museum access for families on the autism spectrum. This early access hour, before the Museum is open to the general public, will allow visitors of all ages to explore the exhibitions and participate in art making projects, facilitated by Museum educators. A different theme will be offered each month. Light breakfast refreshments will be served. Reservations required. For more information and upcoming themes click here.

Sensory Friendly Screenings (First Saturday of the month at 11:00 a.m.)
On the first Saturday of the month, as part of the ongoing Family Matinees series, the Museum offers Sensory Friendly Screenings for those who may find the full darkness and volume of traditional screenings overwhelming. Theater lights will be dimmed, but not completely turned off, and the sound for the screening will be set at a lower volume.
