Sensory-Friendly Planetarium Shows

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!

Upcoming Selections


What makes sensory-friendly shows special?

  • 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 for reduced crowds.

Planetarium Accommodations

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

These supports are always available (in limited quantities). Just ask a planetarium team member when you get to the theater! Learn more about accessibility at Adventure Science Center »

* If your party has an ASL interpreter, we're happy to loan narration scripts and white gloves. If you need us to provide an interpreter, contact us two weeks ahead at
