Sensory Sunday at the Witte Museum!

The Witte Museum is hosting its first ever Sensory Sunday!


They are opening up the Naylor Family Dinosaur Gallery and Predators vs. Prey: Dinosaurs on the Land Before Texas to be extra welcoming and sensory-friendly (comfortable lighting, sound reduced, distractions reduced).


There will be a chill-out zone available for anyone who wants a quiet room in which to relax.


Families will also be welcome to stay in the museum after the event, when the museum opens for regular operating hours (sound and lights will be back on).


The event will cost $5 per person, and we request that families pre-register for the event.
