Sensory Friendly Mornings

Sensory Friendly Mornings are exclusive events for individuals and families living with autism or sensory processing differences. Guests can enjoy Science World exhibits in a comfortable, welcoming and less crowded environment. Wherever possible, exhibits will have adjusted operations and lowered volume levels from 8am to 10am. Volume levels and exhibit operations will return to their usual settings at 10am, when we open to the public. Guests are welcome to stay and explore Science World as long as they wish.

We will also be playing a sensory friendlier screening of Great Bear Rainforest. Learn more.
