ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) Friendly Afternoons (Tuesdays from 1:30pm - 4:30pm)

During ASD Friendly Afternoons, no school groups or birthday parties will be scheduled to avoid overcrowding and support accessibility of exhibits. A dedicated room will also be available to welcome families with a child with an ASD to orient them to the campus and programs, and provide a quiet space for children needing a break from the stimulation of the museums.

 

Evenings for Families with Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (5:00pm to 8:30pm)

During our Free Evenings for Families of Children with an ASD, the Museums are closed to the public so families may explore with others with similar needs.  Food is generously provided by Not Your Average Joe’s of Acton.
