Sensory Friendly Mornings offer neurodiverse individuals, their families and caregivers the ability to visit the museum two hours before scheduled opening. Visitors will enjoy a calm, relaxed atmosphere where they can take part in fun, safe activities with their own ‘bubble’.
During these session, adaptations will be made to the exhibits, such as lowered lighting and sound adjustments for a more relaxed visit. A quiet space will also be available for visitors who need a break.
As part of your visit you will have the use of a Discovery Pack. These packs contain some things that may help your visit:
- Noise cancelling headphones (adjustable for ages 3-18)
- Map of the museum space
- Sensory fidget toys
- Some fun activities to use during your visit
Canucks Autism Network Training
In January 2022, Canucks Autism Network ran two trainings for MONOVA staff which included strategies for supporting individuals and families on the spectrum.
Canucks Autism Network believes that every community should take action to include and support individuals on the spectrum, and we are thrilled to be working in collaboration with them.
We are ready to welcome you!
Due to the nature of this program pre-booking is recommended. However refunds are available if things don’t work out on the day. (Please note: Due to recent changes in the public health orders, drop-ins for the event will also be welcome.)
