Need a little extra sensory support? We are proud to offer sensory backpacks for checkout at the Museum of Ancient Life, Butterfly Biosphere and the Museum of Natural Curiosity. These backpacks are designed for guests with Autism Spectrum Disorders to make their visit more enjoyable. Backpacks include: noise reduction headphones for children or adults, fidget toys, timer, sunglasses, and “if lost please call” wristbands.
Backpacks are free to check out on a first-come, first-serve basis at the admission desk. Guests are required to leave a valid drivers license or keys during use of the kit.
You can download our Social Story HERE to help our guests on the autism spectrum better understand what to expect when visiting the Museum of Natural Curiosity.
