Sensory Friendly Saturdays
On the second Saturday of every month, Miami Children’s Museum offers a sensory friendly experience for children with disabilities and their families. Explore the Museum in a sensory modified and supportive setting with limited admission, as well as lowered sound and lighting. Speak to service providers and learn about community resources available to you and your family. Enjoy a sensory friendly stage performance and participate in a variety of sensory based activities. Our goal is to provide your child with the opportunity to engage in social interactions and improve the processing, modulation and regulation of sensory input to increase their understanding of and participation in a natural environment. You’ll also have the opportunity to network with other families.
Admission to Sensory Friendly Saturday is FREE with required RSVP. Space is limited so register today! Registration will be closed the Friday before each event at 5PM. If you register but cannot attend, please let us know so we can open your space for another family. Please do not register any other family but your own. If you or someone you know needs help registering please call 305-373-5437 ext. 130 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the Museum’s doors are temporarily closed due to COVID-19, we are bringing our programming to you virtually. Join us for a virtual Sensory Friendly Saturday celebration on the second Saturday of every month, featuring at home how-to’s, art projects, exercises, and special performances!
Multi-Sensory / Snoezelen Room at Miami Children's Museum
The Multi-Sensory/Snoezelen Room is a multi-sensory experience with incredible visuals presented in a reduced and comfortable lighting setting and is based on and was designed in collaboration with Beit Issie Shapiro, the global leader of research into Snoezelen therapy. Snoezelen Multi-Sensory Environments are relaxing spaces that help reduce agitation and anxiety, but also engage and delight the user, stimulate reactions and encourage communication. This space has been created specifically for children with autism, sensory processing disorders, global developmental delays and other special needs to enjoy with their families.
