Thinkers Sensory Friendly Hours

  • Thinkery

Member Child/Adult: $3
Non-Member Child/Adult: $5

Free breakfast tacos! Generously donated by El Cruz Ranch. Supplies limited—first-come, first-served.

Thinkery is committed to providing an accessible and interactive experience for all. During Sensory Friendly Hours, Thinkery extends a special invitation to learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) or other special needs to explore Thinkery with their families.

A typical visit to Thinkery can be challenging for those who feel overwhelmed by large crowds and excessive stimuli. In acknowledgement of this, the galleries will be modified to reduce extra stimuli and ticket sales will be limited to reduce crowding. Special hands-on activities will engage children of all ages and abilities.
