Visit the museum before business hours to enjoy reduced noise, lighting effects and our sensory friendly space.

The first Sunday of each month, we will set up the space with bean bag chairs and lower the sound and lighting throughout the museum. Take part in quiet activities such as reading and drawing and play with stress balls and other sensory friendly toys. Noise cancelling headphones are available at the front desk any time as part of our commitment to accessibility.

A sensory friendly space, in partnership with the Canucks Autism Network, is a calm and quiet area with activities and seating designed to be supportive for those with sensory sensitivities to recharge.
