Sensory-Friendly Planetarium Shows

What makes a show Sensory-Friendly?

Our sensory-friendly shows are great for guests with Autism spectrum disorder, sensory sensitivities, or young children. Everyone is welcome… even if you don't have sensory needs!

  • We keep dim lights on to avoid total darkness.
  • We keep the volume low to reduce loud sounds.
  • We have relaxed house rules—it's okay for you to make noise and move around the theater.
  • We limit the number of tickets sold to avoid crowds.

Planetarium Show Accommodations

These supports are always available (in limited quantities):

  • Noise reduction ear muffs
  • Weighted lap blankets
  • Stuffed animals
  • Assistive listening devices
  • White gloves to improve visibility of ASL interpreters' hands*
