Sensory Friendly Days at the B & O Railroad
August 18, 2019 –
SENSORY FRIENDLY DAYS
The B&O is proud to offer the first in a series of Sensory Friendly Days for children and guests with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and sensory processing differences. The museum will be opening one hour early at 10am on the following Sundays to accommodate our guests and their families: March 24, May 19, June 9, July 21, August 18, September 15, & October 20.
This more accessible museum experience features added signage and modified lighting & sounds, as well as the presence of additional volunteers and staff to support visitors throughout their stay. Sensory kits will be stationed throughout the Museum's campus and include feeling charts, break timers, fidgets, stress balls, and noise canceling headphones.
If smaller crowds, specialized activities, less sound and light stimuli, and a designated quiet room will make it easier for you or your child to explore all that the B&O has to offer, this is the day for you! Event is free with general admission.
