Sensory-Friendly Planetarium Shows

Loading Events


Not too dark. Not too loud. Just right.

Our sensory-friendly planetarium 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
How are sensory-friendly showtimes different?
  • We keep dim lights on to avoid darkness.
  • We keep volume low to reduce loud sounds.
  • We have relaxed house rules—it's okay to make noise and move around the theater.
  • We limit capacity for reduced crowds.
Planetarium Accommodations

These are available during all shows (quantity limited). Ask at the theater!

  • Noise reduction ear muffs
