Sensory friendly child guest with parent at the ray touch pool

Second Saturday of the month | 7:30am-9:00am | North Building.

Families that have members with different abilities are invited to visit the Aquarium in a calm, comfortable, sensory-friendly environment. Explore at your own pace before we open the doors to the general public. Advanced registration/timed ticketing is required.

One caretaker will be admitted at no charge if they are working with a guest who is visiting the Aquarium. A caretaker is defined as a required medical attendant without whom the guest could not tour the Aquarium, and the guest may request an additional caretaker be admitted at 50% of the regular admission.

Please note that our Sensory Friendly accommodations are available in the North Building exhibit galleries. Guests to this event are invited to explore the South Building when it opens to the public at 9:00am.
